Be The Hope Walk

  • Maple Valley, Washington (map)

Join Valley’s HOPE Brigade for BeTheHope Walk on July 20

Valley Medical Center is partnering with Valley Girls & Guys, a local 501c3 non-profit led by cancer-fighting warriors for the inaugural BeTheHope Walk on July 20 in Maple Valley. For over a decade, Valley Girls & Guys has helped raise millions of dollars to fight cancer globally and they have now focused that support right here in our own community to help provide funds for local treatment, local research and local patient assistance. In fact, last year Valley Girls & Guys pledged $500,000 in support of Valley’s new Cancer Center and the patients we care for. Valley staff have formed a team, the HOPE Brigade, for the BeTheHope Walk and we’d love for you to join us!

Something for everyone! Pick from 3 options to be a part of Maple Valley history:
1. Walk 18 miles which represents the statistic that 1 in 8 will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. This is not a race, but a journey. It’s a way to show support, get to know our neighbors and participate in a worthy cause that touches many of us. The fundraising commitment is $1800 per walker.

2. A 1.8 mile walk for those undergoing treatment, family members, supporters, EVERYONE from toddler to 100+ years of age are welcome! Fundraising commitment - $180.00 per walker.
