The Hope & Heroes Annual Walk is not just a fundraiser. It's a beautiful tradition that unites us all in raising awareness of childhood cancer and blood disorders. 

While COVID-19 has caused us to reimagine the ways we gather, Hope & Heroes is determined to continue our tradition of bringing together our families and friends, doctors, nurses, and partners to support children and families in treatment at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. 

The Hope & Heroes Annual Walk will take place on Sunday, October 25, 2020, and our top priority is the safety of Walk participants, volunteers, sponsors, supporters, and staff. We are working to provide an impactful event that gives everyone the experience they have come to expect and deserve in a safe, respectful environment. We are also exploring additional ways for teams, walkers, and donors to participate virtually and expand their reach beyond the metro NY region. 

We will be finalizing these details over the next few weeks and will share more information on this website and our social media. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
