Do you know about Help Hope Live’s annual fundraising events? Every year, we bring together clients, team members, and supporters from across the nation to raise hope and funds to support our mission. These events are critical opportunities for our own community of support – that’s you! – to celebrate the power and impact of our mission while raising essential funds and hope.
We’re marking a milestone with this year’s events: 40 years of tireless service to patient families. To keep our mission strong, we need your help. Our annual fundraisers are an exceptional way to pledge your support and sustain our nonprofit as we continue to change lives with our work.
You can experience the mission at the heart of everything we do (and everything you sign up for this year) by following #40andforward: a recap of 40 significant moments in our nonprofit’s history. Follow us on social to join the journey, and see our recap of weeks 1-5 here.

Hope Travels 2023
On Saturday, May 20, 2023, join Help Hope Live supporters across the country as we walk, run, ride, or roll 3.1 miles to raise funds and awareness for our nonprofit mission. This is an opportunity to come together, get moving, and raise critical support for Help Hope Live.
This is a “5K your way!” You choose the time, place, and pace. Organize a pickleball game, walk the dog, work in your garden – any activity that gets you moving counts! Participate as an individual, family, workplace, neighborhood, or friend group—or sponsor Hope Travels to make the greatest impact possible.
Save the Date!
The 11th annual Live It Up! gala will take place on October 26, 2023, at The Drexelbrook in Drexel Hill, PA. This festive evening will feature a plated dinner by Best of the Main Line’s John Serock Catering, an open bar, our growing silent auction, and (our favorite part!) the 2023 Help Hope Live Awards.
We are thrilled to celebrate 40 years of service at Live It Up! this year. Since our founding in 1983, our nonprofit has helped raise more than $172 million to cover unmet medical expenses of over 20,000 families—saving and improving thousands of lives!
