Upcoming Events:

Last year we re-imagined Outrunning Cancer due to COVID, creating an international day of joyful activities reaching far beyond the Louisville marathon. This modification was a spark of light in the pandemic. Seeing you outbiking, outhiking, outdancing cancer was inspiring. As a result, this event will be forever changed – for the better.

Outrunning Cancer will now be known as outLIVING cancer with concept of doing any activity that brings you joy wherever you are!

Join us May 22-23, 2021 – for our first outLIVING cancer weekend. You can do any activity that brings you joy wherever you are, around the world. You can participate on your own or form an outLIVING cancer team. In Louisville you can participate in our Saturday, May 22nd outLIVING Lou event at Seneca Park.  More information coming soon!

Each participant raises or donates at least $50/person and then does an activity that brings them joy that weekend.   We also encourage each participant to create a Give Lively fundraising page to raise money for Hope Scarves.  We make it easy & fun with support available.  Email event@hopescarves.org with questions or ideas.

The first 150 participants will receive an outLIVING cancer t-shirt donated by Brooks and The Trak Shak.

Hope Scarves Founder, Lara MacGregor launched My Hopeful Life as an extension of Hope Scarves in 2020.  This initiative, rooted in her personal story, started with her widely followed blog, My Hopeful Life.  And now includes a film, podcast, speaking engagements and one day, a book.   Living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer has given Lara a unique perspective on facing uncertainty, grounding oneself in gratitude and embracing each day.  Her vision & dedication to Hope Scarves is a powerful force for good in the world.   Follow along with My Hopeful Life as she expands the way we cultivate hope.
