This September 9th and 10th,  I'm climbing the Rocky Steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art for 24 hours straight as one of Legacy of Hope’s sponsored 24-hour athletes in the 6th annual PHL24 endurance event. 

This year I'm climbing the Rocky Steps in honor of Richard "Dick" Young, a U.S. Navy Veteran who passed away in June 2020 after fighting a courageous battle against cancer.

We are fully committed to raising enough money to ensure no cancer patient or family member living in Philadelphia goes hungry. And this year,  as the Legacy of Hope footprint grows, we are poised to address another issue that many of the patients that we serve are facing; housing insecurity.  For many of these families Legacy of Hope is their last resort, and all that stands between them and hunger or homelessness.

I promise never to quit, but I need your support.  With a fundraising goal of $175,000, we remain steadfast in our resolve to make a lasting impact on the lives of those who have nowhere else to turn.  We promise to leave our Legacy of Hope.

Legacy of Hope continues to fight around the clock for Philadelphia cancer patients and their families, ensuring none of them go hungry or without a place to sleep because of their cancer diagnosis.  Check out Legacy of Hope's Emergency Patient Support Network which is literally changing lives and providing hope everyday. To date we’ve prevented hunger for 5,603 cancer patients and family members living in Philadelphia.

I'm incredibly grateful for your support!
