Mile of Hope – Childhood Cancer Event – The Mile of Hope weekend provides an escape from the medical procedures and hospital visits facing young cancer patients. Started in 1991, the event brings a little sunshine, joy and optimism into the lives of these special children and their families.

Our Special Guests – The Mile of Hope celebrates children treated by the Pediatric Oncology Departments of ECU in Greenville, UNC in Chapel Hill, and Duke University in Durham. Families from all over NC with children suffering from cancer and life threatening blood diseases are served by the quality care of these three facilities. Their goal is to help families cope with this illness by offering the treatment, support and care that they need. Dedicated physicians, nurses, social workers and child life specialists provide this care including psychological, nutritional, financial and social assistance.

Guests are treated to a fun-filled visit to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast with activities and entertainment provided by our dedicated volunteers. From sand castle building to local events and tours, the Mile of Hope is an unforgettable weekend for everyone involved.
