Come celebrate our 13th year of helping those in the Fox Valley with brain tumors! The Journey of Hope is our major fundraiser of the year, allowing us to raise most of the funds that we need to survive. This event is critical to the success of this group, so we hope you can join us!

With over 1,000 walkers, the Fox Valley Brain Tumor Coalition puts on a great party the Saturday after Labor Day every year. The non-competitive walk is held on the grounds of NeuroSpine Center of Wisconsin. Our paved 1/2 mile trail is short enough for nearly everyone to make at least one lap around, and is accessible to wheelchairs! For those who like more of a challenge, we encourage as many laps as you are able to do!

The day is a celebration of those fighting brain tumors and remembering those who have lost their battle. The walk starts with a ceremony at the Tree of Hope, with testimonials from those most affected by this disease, as well as a dedication from neurosurgeon Thomas Wascher MD, one of our biggest supporters.

Once you have built up your appetite from the walk, come in to our party tent for a great home-cooked picnic. Vegetarian selections are available for those with restricted diets.

A huge silent auction, kids games, music, pictures and more makes this party fun for everyone! Enjoy kids games, clown, and much more!

As always, dogs are welcome, but should always be on a leash... we will provide water for our four legged friends!

Your registration cost of $10 (yes still only $10 after all these years!!!) includes a great t-shirt with all of our corporate sponsors proudly displayed, lunch and all the fun you can handle! We are excited to have you with us this year…let’s make it a record event!

Remember that this is a FUNDARAISER!! We work hard all year to be able to celebrate as a family at the Journey of Hope, but we cannot survive if we do not raise money!! PLEASE do your best to raise what you can from friends, families, neighbors, etc. Raise over $100 and you are in the drawing for a chance to win great prizes! Be one of the top fundraisers and win the BIG prizes!! If your company would like to be a corporate sponsor, please contact David Bond directly at 920-882-0818.

All donations are used to assist those patients in the Fox Valley area with medical bills. All of our staff are volunteers and we have an extremely low overhead to operate. Your money goes further when donated to this group! We are a 501c3 organization, so your donation is likely tax-deductible.
