The Journey of Hope is our major fundraiser of the year, allowing us to raise most of the funds that we need to survive. All donations are used to assist those patients in the Fox Valley area with medical bills. All of our staff are volunteers and we have an extremely low overhead to operate. This event is critical to the success of this group, so we hope you can join us!
The Fox Valley Brain Tumor Coalition puts on a great party the Saturday after Labor Day every year. The Journey of Hope is a celebration of those fighting brain tumors and remembering those who have lost their battle.
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! Registered walkers who raise over $100 are entered in the drawing for a chance to win great prizes!
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. If your company would like to be a corporate sponsor, please contact David Bond directly at 920-882-0818.
The walk 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. The non-competitive walk is held on the grounds of NeuroSpine Center of Wisconsin. 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!
Your money goes further when donated to this group! We are a 501c3 organization, so your donation is likely tax-deductible.
Thank you for helping us make the Journey of Hope 2015 a huge success!
We hope to see you again next year!
