We're so glad you've chosen to participate in our
2nd Annual Walk of Hope - Under 1,000 Umbrellas!
When hundreds of passionate hearts come together, united by a single mission, they can truly change the world. And that's exactly what we'll be doing Saturday, May 25; raising awareness of ALS, Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson's, Huntington's, Alzheimer's, and all neurodegenerative diseases, while raising $100,000 to fund research for a cure. The 2nd Annual Walk of Hope & Spring Festival in Downtown Plattsburgh is ready to go and we want you there every step of the way.
Bring your determination, your energy, and your passion in support of the Walk of HOPE. More than just a few-mile trek, it's an opportunity to raise awareness of these horrific disorders, bring hope to patients, and raise money for a cure; while coming together with your friends and family to fight for something you care about.
Register to walk, start raising funds, and when you reach $50
we'll reserve an offical Walk of HOPE Umbrella and T-Shirt in your name.
Take Steps Toward a Cure
Step 1: Register TODAY and Begin Fundraising
As soon as you register, you'll have access to our online fundraising tools which make your efforts fast, easy, and more convenient than ever.
Step 2: Team Up for More Fun!
Why walk alone? Form a team and share the experience with friends, family, and coworkers. The more people who unite under a common goal, the greater our impact can be in the fight against ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinsons's, Huntington's and all neurodegenerative diseases.
Step3: Let's Walk!
Join the excitement on walk day as you join with other passionate supporters in their quest to end these horrific disorders.
Start Your Own Team - Start with an Action Plan
Recruit 10+ walkers for your team (smaller/larger teams are permitted).
Name your Team and Set a Team Fundraising goal.
Ask each team member to raise a specific amount of money to help achieve the team goal. For example, a team of 10 walkers can raise $2,500 if each walker raises $250.
Help your team members register.
Each Team Member has their own personal web page to add photos to and explain why they're walking and encourage friends and family to contribute to their efforts.
Share on Social Media! Invite your friends to do a virtual walk on-line!
Send e-mails to your friends and family. Participants who send e-mails raise almost three times as much as those who don't! Invite them to join your team, encourage them to raise money, and ask them to make a donation to help you reach your goal.
The Walk of HOPE Challenge Cup
The Challenge Cup will be awarded annually to the team with the highest fundraising total--the team's name and town will be engraved on one of the Cup's plaques. As we continue the Walk of HOPE, the Challenge Cup will travel regionally and nationally and your team's name will travel with it.
New This Year
Every registered participant's name will be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 5 Gift Certificates valued at $100 each!
