Each year on the Thursday before Memorial Day Weekend, Hope Hall’s students, teachers and staff take a one mile Walk for Hope around the community in which the school is located. Following the walk, everyone returns to school for a picnic, followed by a field day with sports, games, chalk drawing, prizes and more.
For many of our students, this is one of their favorite days of the year.
Our fifth grade students are so enthusiastic about the Walk for Hope that they created business plans, made handcrafted items, and sold them in school on May 13, raising $400 for their class’ Walk for Hope Campaign
In the May newsletter, Sister Diana Dolce put out a call for “Sole Mates” for our students…supporters who would make a donation to assist students who have been challenged to make the $100 or more that each participant is asked to raise.
We thank the many, many “Sole Mates” who contributed funds to help these students achieve their goals, as well as the donors who sent in gift cards, or funds to be used to purchase gift cards that will be used as prizes for students who reach or exceed their goals
We also send an ENORMOUS thanks out to our Community Supporters!
- BC Dental Design – Team Supporter hosting a Walk for Hope on May 26
- Kroll Law Firm – Community Supporter
- St. Pius X Federal Credit Union – Team Supporter hosting a Walk for Hope on May 24

If you haven’t already, and would like to get involved in our Walk for Hope, there’s still time to create a team or individual page and raise funds for the Walk for Hope. You can also become a “Sole Mate” to students striving to achieve their goal of $100 or more, or donate gift cards that will be used as thank you gifts for students achieving their goal. Simply click this link for more information on the Walk for Hope.
