Walk of HOPE

The Walk of Hope  begins at the main stage and is led first by our pediatric survivors followed by our adult survivors. The first leg (under 1 mile) goes by the Duke Cancer Center (Medicine Circle), then back towards the event on Flowers Drive. The second leg of the walk (approx 1.5 miles) takes you through the Duke Gardens.

The walk is wheelchair accessible but the Duke Gardens has gravel pathways.
