The Chris Hope Foundation (CHF), a nonprofit organization providing financial and social support services to families of children diagnosed with pediatric cancer and other childhood illnesses, today announced a sizable donation from Teamsters Local 667 in the amount of $10,000. Teamsters has also been named the presenting sponsor of Race for HOPE through 2023.
The Teamsters are America’s largest, most diverse union. In 1903, Teamsters started as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. Now, the organization is composed of drivers who fuel America’s robust economic growth. The Memphis-based chapter, Teamsters Local 667, is a longtime supporter of CHF and its mission.
“Community partners help fuel our work,” said CHF Founder and CEO Chris Hope. “We are so grateful for Teamsters’ continued commitment and dedication to helping families in need. With their support, we are already on track for successful races for the next two years.”
The annual race welcomes runners of all ages and experience levels. Funds raised go toward the CHF mission of providing resources that families are missing due to financial stressors. This ranges from making a child’s birthday by delivering their dream gift, to powering a college education, easing the burden of medical bills and covering other expenses families endure related to cancer diagnoses and other life threatening illnesses.
The 2023 CHF Race for HOPE is scheduled for Saturday, October 28. Registration is already open on RunSignUp.
