Thank you for your support! 


What is Walk of Champions? The Walk of Champions was inspired in 2006 by John O’Neill following a personal experience he and his family shared with the staff at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital; in particular its Cancer Services.  John was so touched by the care and compassion that they received that he wanted to give something back to the community and Walk of Champions was born.  Last year, over 1,200 men, women and children participated in Walk of Champions amidst the beautiful scenery of Quabbin Reservoir’s Goodnough Dike.

What does Walk of Champions Fund? During the past ten years Walk of Champions has raised over $650,000 for Cancer Services to benefit patient care at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital. Funds are raised through the Baystate Health Foundation and have been used for many items including family support counseling, educational outreach, pastoral care, medications and state-of-the-art equipment purchases. 

A little rain didn't dampen the spirits of all the 2016 participants!

A special thanks to the staff of the Baystate Regional Cancer Program at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital - it is because of the wonderful care you give your patients every day that we are so successful!
