Why Do You Walk?

There are so many reasons to walk — each an incredibly personal and moving tribute, but everyone walks for a future without cancer.


A future of hope — the day where no one must endure a diagnosis ever again. 


By walking together, we’ll advocate for increased access to quality care, widen patient support during every step of the cancer journey and move closer toward cures for this devastating disease. 


At City of Hope, we’re not just with you for the first step. We’re also with you for the next step. 


We’re turning hope into a reality — and we’re walking in hope to one day end cancer for all.

Defining the Impact

Your participation in a 2K/5K Walk for Hope helps fund three important aspects in the fight to end cancer for all.

  • Cancer Breakthroughs. Your support shortens the time it takes to get from bold, innovative ideas to powerful, new treatments for cancers of all kinds — and, ultimately, the day we have cures.
  • Individualized Cancer Care. A cancer journey looks different for every person. You’ll help provide support groups, integrative therapies, educational classes and workshops, and more opportunities for compassionate, personalized care.
  • Health Equity. Together, we’re advocating for increased access to quality care and treatments, ensuring that everyone can have the opportunity to fight — and survive — cancer.

100% of net proceeds raised by Walk for Hope support City of Hope cancer research and life-giving care.

Making Hope Personal Since 1997

In 1913, a group of people saw their family, friends and co-workers suffering from a lack of quality health care and took action to lay the groundwork for City of Hope. 

Then, inspired by City of Hope’s roots, a female-driven community came together in 1997 to seek an end to breast and gynecological cancers. With a renewed aspiration of finding cures, Walk for Hope began. And since its inception nearly 30 years ago, Walk for Hope has raised over $47 million dollars to benefit progress in treating women’s cancers. 

Some walk for a loved one. Some walk in honor of their own journey. Others walk for a tomorrow when everyone can get the care they deserve. And while the reason may be personal, the impact is universal. By walking, supporters contribute to City of Hope’s unmatched momentum in the race to find cures.  

Today, Walk for Hope has grown into a nationwide, cancer-ending movement that makes hope happen by funding lifesaving research, access-widening advocacy and dignity-giving care for all. 

Walk for Hope offers an opportunity for anyone who calls cancer a part of their story to take tangible steps toward the day when cancer is gone.  

Are you ready? Let’s walk together to end cancer for all forever.
