The Day of Hope, to support the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care, is a day of inspiration and celebration on Oct. 2.

Even though the event has to be virtual, you are invited to join in for a virtual ceremony honoring the cancer community and take part in the educational opportunities. Also, you can walk in your neighborhood or on a favorite trail to honor those in your life impacted by cancer.

Purchase a pinwheel and leading up to The Day of Hope, purple pinwheels will be planted in the Healing Gardens at the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care. Honor a loved one impacted by cancer while also supporting the incredible work of the HACCC. Pinwheels are $10 each.

The Day of Hope has a common goal of celebrating the cancer community and supporting the work and patients at the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care.
