Ridgewood Chamber Announces Walk/Run for Hope Team

Posted: Thursday, July 27, 2017

For the second year in a row, I am happy to report that the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce has entered a team in CancerCare’s 30th Annual Walk/Run for Hope, which will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at Bergen Community College. Shelley Kohen, of Creative Solutions, is our fearless leader!

What is the Walk/Run for Hope?
The Walk/Run for Hope provides participants and attendees with an opportunity to come together to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and support people impacted by cancer. The event, which is celebrating its 30th year, is a USATF-NJ sanctioned and certified 5K and walk that raises funds for CancerCare’s free supportive services and programs for New Jersey patients, caregivers and loved ones affected by cancer.

In addition to the 5K, the event includes a children’s Fun Run (complete with medals for all participants) and activities for kids of all ages. Locally sponsored snacks and beverages are available for all participants and volunteers.

How can I help?
There are few ways to help make this event a success:

1. Join the team! In honor of our 30th anniversary, our goal is to get 30 teams each with 30 participants – and with your help, we know that we can do it!

2. Purchase a tribute sign: This year, we are offering the opportunity to honor every life affected by cancer by dedicating a Tribute Sign to celebrate a survivor, remember a loved one or support someone touched by cancer. All signs will be posted along the Walk/Run for Hope course.
