Walk For Cancer


The Walk For Cancer – our signature event – is an annual fundraiser for The Night of Hope Foundation that takes place each August. The Walk For Cancer has grown in size and scope year after year, but the goal has always remained the same: Raise money to support local cancer patients and cancer research.

Until 2009, the Walk For Cancer was held at Weymouth Field. Following the completion of the new Legion Park Pond, the walk moved to its new location. The pond has proven a popular choice with attendees and the walk continues to be held there every year.

Walks have featured guest speakers ranging from state senators to medical professionals from the University of Nebraska Medical College. Ninety percent of the funds raised from the walk stay here in Sidney and the surrounding communities to help local cancer patients in their time of need. The remaining 10 percent is sent to the Eppley Center in Omaha for cancer research.

Our walks have featured silent auctions, giveaway and family activities. Local businesses have historically gone above and beyond the call of duty by donating to the Night of Hope Walk For Cancer. And the people... There just are not enough words to describe the beautiful hearts of the people who volunteer to help us and who attend to help others.

We invite you to visit us at the Sidney Legion Park Pond this year on Aug. 10, 2018. The event begins at 6 p.m. and this year's theme is "Celebrate Life". Please join us for this true community event and help those battling cancer know that help is on the way and that finding a cure is only a matter of time.
