Breast Cancer Walk of Hope

Please note that the York Hospital Breast Cancer Survivors Group has had it's last meeting as of April 2017. After almost 25 years, they have concluded their efforts for this worthy cause and event.  There will be no event for the Summer of 2017 and moving forward.  Thank you all for your continued support over the years.

The Walk for Hope is an opportunity to raise awareness on behalf of breast cancer survivors and their loved ones as well as financially support local organizations who assist breast cancer patients and survivors.  Organizers have announced the 2016 Walk of Hope for Breast Cancer Survivors will take place on July 28, 2016 in York Beach, ME. 

All are invited to join for a 2-mile Stroll to Long Sands Beach while raising funds for some great local causes.  Registration will be at Shorts Sands Ball Field (by the Fire Station), and begins at 5:00 p.m. on July 28. A $15.00 entry fee entitles you to a T-shirt & Refreshments.  The Opening Ceremony and Warm-Up begins at 5:45 p.m., and the WALK BEGINS AT 6:00 P.M.  Door Prizes Awarded at 7:00 p.m.  You must be present to win.
