ABOUT WALK FOR HOPE
This year, Walk for Hope will be a virtual, weeklong challenge, raising funds for discoveries in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research and care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. For this challenge, each team will create a meaningful mileage goal and ask friends and family for donations in support of that goal. The week will feature special videos and incentives and will conclude with an inspiring virtual program.
Learn everything about this weeklong virtual challenge, including how to register, create a team and start your fundraising to find a cure.
Find out how to become a master fundraiser, so we can create more game-changing discoveries for children with IBD.
Why Get Active?

Our Fundraising Goal: $110,000.00

Hosted by: the IBD Family Research Council
The IBD Family Research Council (FRC) was founded in 2006 as a group of grateful families with the mission of raising funds for IBD research at CHOP. Walk for Hope was created by the FRC in 2009 and has become the group’s annual fundraising event. It is the only major event in the greater Philadelphia area directly supporting pediatric IBD research.
