If you want to join the Philadelphia Team, but cannot make the Finish Line Event on September 15th, email us and we can coordinate how you can contribute miles before the finish line date.
The Hope Express is a 135-mile run created to bridge the gap between the families on the 7th floor at the Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA and the Dancers at the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (aka THON), a year round fundraising event benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund, Conquering Childhood Cancer.
Please email Christina at firstname.lastname@example.org, Ami at email@example.com or Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in running, planning, volunteering, donating and/or have any questions or suggestions.
Why September 15?
The Hope express now entering its 7th year wanted to have a date that signified the significance of what our charity is all about. The founders, Connie and Hank Angus felt that September 15th was the perfect day because it was on September 15, 2004 that their son Gabriel was diagnosed with leukemia. To date the Hope Express has raised more than $150,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund in Hershey, PA.
Thank you in advance for your support!
For those not in Philly, there are 17 other teams throughout the United States. Join the Philadelphia Team by pledging miles and running “Virtually” or visit hopeexpress.org to find a team near you.
Spreading the word is the easiest and most effective way to help. Please pass this event along to all of your friends and ask them to do the same. Thank you!
