Hope In Motion's Walk & Run

Every June, Hope In Motion hosts the Walk & Run, one of Fairfield County's largest and longest running participant fundraising events. Over 4,500 participants, come together in downtown Stamford to celebrate life, comfort those living with cancer, honor survivors, and remember those who lost their battle with cancer.

The event includes a 10K and 5K timed run, and a 5K walk. Participants gather in the park for refreshments, music, free gifts from sponsors, demonstrations and family-fun activities. Proceeds go toward the Bennett Cancer Center.

Hope in Motion's Mini Events

Hope in Motion is community support in action and is our year-round fundraising initiative for the Bennett Cancer Center at Stamford Hospital. Mini-events support the Bennett Cancer Center’s signature event the Walk & Run. Funds raised benefit the Cancer Center’s integrative medicine program, clinical trials, art therapy, and grateful patient programs. These funds are instrumental in supporting our patients, family members, co-workers, friends and neighbors.
