Day of Celebration

Welcome to the Virtual Hope Walks Day of Celebration!

While we won’t be walking side-by-side this year, we will still be walking together.  We are so grateful to all of our walkers, donors and sponsors for making this year’s Hope Walks so special.  Thank you for participating in Hope Walks and for raising over $137,000 and counting, to benefit the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley!

Where to Walk

On Sunday, October 4th, walk wherever you like. We are encouraging you to walk around your neighborhood, go to the park, walk your dogs or head to the beach. We are encouraging walkers to walk 2 miles but do what feels right to you. Don’t forget your Hope Walks shirt and your mask.

Let’s Get Social

We are encouraging all walkers to take pictures and videos of their walk on Sunday, October 4th and share them with us on social media. Don’t forget to tag us, using #NWHHopeWalks

Photos can also be emailed to

* By sharing your walk photos or videos with us, you are giving Newton-Wellesley Hospital consent to use them for the purpose of creating marketing materials and for posting such photos, film and/or recordings on social media platforms.
