Walk for Hope Chavez County
October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“WALK FOR HOPE” was started by a committed group of people in 2010 for the purpose and intent of helping people with living expenses as they go through cancer treatment. All of these folks were either cancer survivors or had family members and loved ones who had gone through cancer treatment. Some of them were cancer survivors but many lost their battle to this devastating disease. Instead of focusing on their grief and loss, they chose to do something positive for the community. Since they all understood firsthand the financial difficulties and emotional stress, they decided that all of the funds that were raised would remain local.
This year’s Walk for Hope will be a collaboration with Mainstreet Roswell’s First Friday Downtown and Paint the Town Pink. This event will be much smaller than the annual Walk out at Cielo Grande, but this will still give us a chance to honor survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and raise money for the Chaves County Cancer Fund.
The Walk for Hope committee will be set up on the courthouse lawn with t-shirts for sale as well as our usual pink items. DJ Hendawg will be out there. We will line the courthouse sidewalks all the way around with luminarias. Teams will not be able to set up tents.
