Why do you STOMP cancer?!
“For those who can’t.” “For my mom.” “Because cancer sucks.” “Love…”
These are all reasons why over 800 runners and walkers came out to STOMP Cancer in Bringing Hope Home’s 5th Annual West Chester STOMPS Cancer 5K & Family Walk, raising over $65,000 for our families. The streets of West Chester quickly filled with our amazing participants—individuals, families, friends, and huge teams alike. The enthusiasm was infectious and we were overwhelmed by the amazing energy of every walker and runner.
Congrats to our Team Winners!
