Each year, the Mile of Hope provides young cancer patients and their families a fun-filled weekend at the beach. The event brings a little sunshine, joy and optimism into the lives of these special children and their families.
This year is a Pirate/Treasure Island themed weekend hosted by Atlantis Lodge and the Hampton Inn.
Three different hospitals recommend the 35 children to attend the weekend. Families are included.
It costs about $600 per family to attend.
The weekend costs approximately $20,000. Donations are needed.
