Thankful and Hopeful

Posted By

As we approach Thanksgiving we’d like to express how thankful we are!

We are so thankful for all of you who have helped us to spread 100% HOPE across West Michigan and beyond this year. Without the generous help of our event hosts, community partners, sponsors, and event attendees we would not be able to do what we do!

Our team is loving how our program has grown this year. March arrived with our new event coordinator, McKenzie, who has fabulously advocated for hope throughout the community. The Purple Community Cabinet has also put in their professional and personal skills to develop our program into the best version of itself.

100% HOPE means dedication to finding new treatments for diseases such as cancer and Parkinson’s. It means never giving up in the face of hardships. It means community, which is all of you!

With your help we hosted 114 events so far this year. We are also grateful for the over 100 volunteers who helped make this possible, without your volunteer hours we would not be able to have the impact that we do. Our events have raised over $605,000 so far this year.

We will never stop being thankful for each and every one of you who have helped make 2018 our best year ever and for helping us finish this year strong! Cheers to a great year and an even better one to come, filled with hope!
