"This event is unlike any other. Since we started in 2016, 100% of our donations have gone to local Johnstown cancer patients that need the financial support."
-Marlene Singer, Johnstown Walk of Hope Coordinator
Thank you for helping us keep HOPE close to HOME!
Even though the 2020 Johnstown Walk of Hope was cancelled, we are so appreciative of the donations from our supporters and teams!
We still have a chance to reach our goal as we just topped $30,000! Cancer didn't go away because of COVID-19, and we are committed to raising as much as we can to help patients who will need assistance now more than ever. Remember, 100% of donations support local patients fighting a cancer diagnosis. Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for helping us Keep HOPE Close to HOME!
The Johnstown Walk of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money to support local cancer patients and caregivers in the Johnstown, PA area. The Johnstown Walk of Hope was established in 2016 to help keep hope close to home and support patients in our community. Unlike other fundraising events, all donations stay local and every penny is donated to support patients with expenses including medical testing, meals, transportation, wigs, and medication. In 2019, over 80 patients in Cambria County received financial assistance as a result of our event.
The Johnstown Walk of Hope is managed by the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies and assists patients who receive care at the following organizations:
UPMC Hillman Cancer Center
Conemaugh Cancer Center
Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center
Children Are Precious Fund*
*Children Are Precious Fund supports families financially, especially those who need to travel out of town for treatment.
