Over the past 6 years, 512 runners have raised over $350,000 for Hope Scarves.

Unfortunately, the April 25, 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF) Marathon & Marathon Relay have been canceled due to COVID-19.  The KDF miniMarathon is rescheduled for August 22, 2020.  

While some of our team will run the KDF miniMarthon on August 22nd, we hope hundreds will join us August 22nd across the country as part of our Outrunning Cancer Coast to Coast team.

Outrunning Cancer is the second largest and healthiest fundraiser for Hope Scarves – raising $65,000 annually to support metastatic breast cancer research and sending Hope Scarves to people facing cancer around the world.  We run for those who can’t. For friends we have lost. For sisters, moms, wives, friends, strangers.  We run because wellness is important for all us. Now, more than ever.  Join or support our Coast to Coast team . Email us with questions or ideas.

Miles to go… closer with each step.

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.
