About Community Walk for Breast Cancer


Miles of Hope Community Walk, Run, Bike for Breast Cancer

For the past 18 years, we have honored all who have been affected by breast cancer with an October Walk event.  Since we were unable to gather in-person last year, we created a virtual event to continue this tradition. This year we will continue with our Virtual Walk, Run, Bike, AND offer our in-person gathering as well.  We will host our Walk event on October 3 at James Baird State Park, for those who wish to gather and walk together again.  Rain or shine we will be there!

We invite everyone to walk, run and/or bike virtually, throughout October; around the neighborhood, in a park, in your town, on a trail, or wherever you are, to honor the fighters, survivors, and those that we have lost to breast cancer.  For those who are comfortable gathering, we invite you to register for our Walk at the park on 10/3 in addition to the virtual event.

Our event will be partnered with Breast Cancer Awareness Month to create a month-long challenge! (But you only need to register once) Challenge yourself, or your family and friends, be active, and reduce your risk for cancer while supporting our cause. Log your miles, share your photos and videos, and know that we are still together in spirit all month long in October.

Even during the pandemic, Miles of Hope continued to fund support services and be a resource for our community. To date, Miles of Hope has given away over 2.4 million dollars. 

Thank you to all who support us and for helping us reach our fundraising goal.  Together, we all make a difference. 

We can’t wait to see your photos and videos!

Our Community Walk, Run, Bike is an opportunity to honor our breast cancer community.  Traditionally our walk route is lined with road markers; encouraging fighters, celebrating survivors and showing appreciation for those who support along the way.  For our virtual event, you may print your "I walk for..", " I run for...", or "I ride for..." sign (under the register tab) and fill it in with who motivates you! Upload your photos and share your hero(es) with us so that we can all honor them together.
