Community Walk, Run, Bike for Breast Cancer


FAQ's

  • What is the Miles of Hope Community Walk, Run, Bike for Breast Cancer?

Our annual Walk takes place every October.  This year, for the first time, our Walk is going virtual in an effort to host our great event, while staying safe during challenging times. Our first Walk in 2003 was created to bring awareness to the need for breast cancer support programs in our region.  To this day, Miles of Hope is the only Breast Cancer Foundation where all of the money raised stays in the Hudson Valley.  This money directly funds support services and outreach to our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues whose lives have been affected by breast cancer.  The Walk is not only a fundraiser, but an opportunity to walk in honor of, in memory of and in support of friends and loved ones. We can participate together, while apart, and continue to make a difference in our community.
