El Paso Children’s Hospital is once again hosting the Candlelighters 26th annual Walk of Hope benefitting local children with cancer.
The event is set for Saturday, September 28th, and features a kid’s Fun Fair starting at 5:00 p.m. and a luminaria lighted walk around Ascarate Lake beginning at 8:00 p.m.
The Fun Fair will feature family friendly activities including carnival games and more. Enjoy your favorite El Paso mascots in a race of their own before the walk, dance group performances, mariachis, craft vendors, and food trucks.
Register as an individual or create a team by visiting CandlelightersELP.org. Luminarias and floating water lanterns are available for purchase at the walk. Decorate them with your message of hope for those battling cancer or in memory of a loved one.
Join the community in this tribute and help light the way for those currently fighting cancer, while honoring the angels who have lost their battle.
This event is free to attend and all funds raised through donations and merchandise sales fund our new initiative to extend our emergency financial assistance to young adults through age 25.
