We are excited to announce the Rays of Hope Walk & Run Toward the Cure of Breast Cancer! We will once again be back at Temple Beth El at 979 Dickinson Street in Springfield, Massachusetts, the official starting location of our Walk & Run. If you are immune compromised, you may not be comfortable in a large crowd and are always welcome to walk or run where and when you can in support of Rays of Hope.

This year, we’re asking everyone to once again 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 people 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. They need support now more than ever.

Registration is now open! Join as an Individual Participant, Form A Team or Join A Team.

2024 Offline Fundraising Form coming soon!

2023 Event T-Shirts

Participants who would like a 2024 Rays of Hope t-shirt will need to raise a minimum of $50 online or turn in a minimum of $50 raised at the event on October 27. 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. T-shirts are given out at the Rays of Hope Walk & Run Toward the Cure only and are not mailed out and are while supplies last.

Register as an Individual Participant or Create a Team or Join a Team
to support LOCAL breast cancer care, programs and research!


Fundraising is the next step!
All Rays of Hope funds remain local to support breast cancer patients and survivors in western MA, the Rays of Hope Center for Breast Cancer Research and local community programs.

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


We'll be starting once again at Temple Beth El in Springfield then walking and running in and around Forest Park on Sunday, October 27. Join us that day or walk and run whenever and wherever you choose - now through December 31!

Get maps and directions for the two and five mile routes.
