As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our community is our top priority. With that in mind, we must make the decision to cancel the in-person Rays of Hope Walk & Run Toward the Cure of Breast Cancer and move to a drive-through Parade of Hope. This year, we will hold the Parade of Hope at Temple Beth El at 979 Dickinson Street in Springfield, Massachusetts, the official starting location of our Walk & Run for 28 years! 

Register to participate and walk or run ANYWHERE and ANY DAY you’d like. Log miles in your neighborhood, in a park, or even indoors on treadmill. Then, be sure to join us on Sunday, October 24 at Temple Beth El for the exciting and celebratory Parade of Hope! Click here for more Parade of Hope details and frequently asked questions.

This year, we’re asking everyone to EMBRACE THE POWER OF PINK and work extra-hard to raise the funds that have created Rays of Hope, this big pink hug of help that surrounds the women and men living in western Massachusetts who are faced with breast cancer. Research at the Rays of Hope Center for Breast Cancer Research, located in Springfield, MA, has not stopped. We must find the cure. Hundreds of local families are affected each year with a cancer diagnosis, even during a pandemic. They need support now more than ever.

This year there will not be a registration fee. But in order to participate, you still need to register as an Individual participant, Form A Team or Join A Team.

Once again, participants who would like a 2021 Rays of Hope t-shirt will need to raise a minimum of $50 online. However, if you are a survivor, you can get a special pink Rays of Hope t-shirt, regardless of fundraising. Please know that we consider you a survivor the day you are diagnosed.



  Here's How To Participate: (it's easier than you think!) Watch this awesome video

Cancer Research and local

Breast cancer still has no cure and
HOPE will never be canceled.
