Hope Center, a ministry of Lowell Church of Christ, is a non-profit cancer support center supporting Northwest Indiana cancer patients and their families. Join us at beautiful Stoney Run County Park while supporting and uplifting those battling cancer—-and cancer survivors. Event highlights include a kids fun run, pre-race stretching, survivor recognition and more!
All funds raised will support Hope Center programs and activities. Patients, survivors and their families never pay for Hope Center activities. Programs are always funded by donors.
