Save the Date for the 2019 HOPEwalk!

Join us on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Cherry Hill Park and Pavilion for the sixth annual HOPEwalk. Registration will open soon.

Thank you 2018 Participants!

On September 29, 2018 we had 700 walkers at the 5th Annual HOPEwalk and raised over $40,000! All funds raised stay in the Eastern Iowa area. Check out what we fund and if you or an organization has a need for funding that aligns with the HOPEwalk mission, please fill out a grant request


The HOPEwalk is a local community based walk to remember loved ones lost to suicide, support survivors, raise awareness, and work on prevention in the Cedar Rapids area community. The HOPEwalk stands for…

H – Honoring
O – Openness
P – Prevention
E – Education

The HOPEwalk is a one-lap walk at Cherry Hill Park (approximately one mile) on Saturday, September 21, 2018. Check-in and day-of-registration will begin at 8:30am, with the opening presentation beginning at 9:30am.

Donations can be made online and on the day of the actual walk. Checks, cash, and credit cards will be accepted day of the walk. Online donations will continue up to and after the event. Donations can be made in support of a specific walker, team, or to the overall cause.

Those that wish to bring a photo or memory of their loved one can share on the memory wall at the walk. We will also share a roll call of those we are walking for. Counselors will be available at the walk should anyone wish to speak to them.

If you would like to volunteer at the HOPEwalk, please sign up will be coming soon..
