Hope Walk
May 6, 2023


Join us at Stewart’s Caring Place on May 6 for the 17th annual Hope Walk! This family-friendly event will offer activity stations, entertainment, food trucks and more.  The highlight of the event is a 2 mile walk together through the surrounding neighborhoods of Stewart’s Caring Place; all to celebrate community, friendship, and courage. 

Additionally, the Hope Walk will include the opening of Kaleidescope, an art exhibit throughout the halls of Stewart’s Caring Place. The exhibition features artwork from local professional and aspiring artists, honoring the lives of those impacted by the nonprofit. During the exhibition, those visiting will see the variety of ways people find strength and inspiration on their healing journey through art. 

Register as an individual walker or create a team! If you aren’t able to attend the event, you can register as a virtual walker and pledge to walk 2 miles on your own time. Individuals who raise $500 or more will receive a $50 gift certificate to Lucky Shoes. 


Help us celebrate 20 years of Stewart’s Caring Place by pledging to walk 20 miles! Walk your first 18 miles on your own and finish your last 2 miles with us, here at Stewart’s Caring Place. Those who are in the 20 Mile Club will receive a $20 gift certificate from Lucky Shoes and a commemorative button.
