The Fox Valley Brain Tumor Coalition puts on a great party the Saturday after Labor Day every year on the grounds of Neuro-Spine Center of Wisconsin. A celebration of those fighting brain tumors and remembering those who have lost their battle, the Journey of Hope event is our major fundraiser of the year and provides most of the funds that we need to survive. All of our staff are volunteers and we have an extremely low overhead to operate. Donations stay in the Fox Valley area and are used to assist brain tumor patients with medical bills. This event is critical to the success of this group, so we hope you can join us!
Your registration cost of $10 (yes still only $10 after all these years!!!) includes a great t-shirt with all of our corporate sponsors proudly displayed, lunch and all the fun you can handle! We accept cash or credit the day of the event. Registered walkers who raise over $100 are entered in the drawing for a chance to win great prizes!
Pre-registration appreciated, but currently closed, watch for 2017!
Remember that this is a FUNDARAISER!! We work hard all year to be able to celebrate as a family at the Journey of Hope, but we cannot survive if we do not raise money!! PLEASE do your best to raise what you can from friends, families, neighbors, etc. Your money goes further when donated to this group! We are a 501c3 organization, so your donation is likely tax-deductible. If your company would like to be a corporate sponsor, please contact David Bond directly at 920-882-0818.
The non-competitive walk is held and starts by honoring those who have lost their battle, with testimonials from those most affected by this disease, and a ceremony at the Tree of Hope. Our paved, wheelchair accessible, 1/2 mile trail is short enough for nearly everyone to make at least one lap around. For those who like more of a challenge, we encourage as many laps as you are able to do! As always, dogs are welcome, but should always be on a leash… we will provide water for our four legged friends!
Once you have built up your appetite from the walk, come in to our party tent for a great home-cooked picnic. Vegetarian selections are available for those with restricted diets.
Check out our huge silent auction while kids play in the giant inflatables, do activities or games, get balloons from the clown, and much more!
Items needed for Silent Auction
We are always in need of items for the silent auction. If you have something to donate prior to the event, please drop it off at the front desk of NeuroSpine Center of Wisconsin as soon as possible!
Thank you for joining us, in spite of the rain, and for making 2016 a Huge Success!
