Johnstown Walk of Hope
June 3, 2016 - June 4, 2016
The Johnstown Walk of Hope will take place on Saturday June 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight at Johnstown Trojan Stadium, Central Avenue. Laurel Auto Group/Ann Harris Smith Foundation is sponsoring this community event that is for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer and wants to help raise awareness and raise money. What makes the Johnstown Walk of Hope different is that ALL of the donations will stay LOCAL to support cancer patients, families, caregivers and organizations that care for cancer. The Johnstown Walk of Hope fund is now open at the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.
Proceeds from the Johnstown Walk of Hope will benefit local cancer patients and their families and cancer nonprofits, including Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center/Windber Research Institute, 1889 Foundation for patients at the Conemaugh Cancer Center, UPMC Cancer Center, and the newly created Children are Precious Fund, which supports families who need to travel out of the Johnstown Area for treatment.
