Through our partnership with St. Vincent Hospital, Zionsville West Middle School will have a team in the Oct. 6 Walk for Hope. 2011 was the inaugural year of the Walk for Hope and the event generated over $375,000 towards the patients of St. Vincent Cancer Care. Cancer patients benefit directly through programs and services such as the newly created Art Therapy Program, patient navigators, beautiful journals for recording their cancer journey, support groups, peer-to-peer network, and more. 100% of all money raised stays in our community and benefits the cause. This walk will begin at 9 a.m. at Lions Park in Zionsville, and our school district will have a team from each school involved in this event!
