Hope Express Runner Details 
Love to run?? Still hate cancer?? The Hope Express helps bridge the gap from Hershey to the BJC.  It is a 135-mile relay run that raises money for THON.  Each year, dozens of runners carry cards and letters, written by the kids at the children’s hospital, to the THON dancers.  They run through the night and over mountains to deliver those precious letters.  Last year, the Hope Express raised over $155,000 FTK!!  If you want to run, applications will be available here starting on September 1st and due by September 30th.
