Hope: The Key To Endless Possibility 

“Woke up ‘cause the light poured in.”

— Toby Mac

Within Hope lies the ability to see light in the darkness. Hope, the evidence of things not seen. To Hope is to risk despair. Hope is the last thing ever lost.

There are so many meanings behind such a simple word. When the world crashes in around you with the delivery of the terrifying phrase, “It’s cancer,” this simple word, HOPE, becomes a mantra! Hope is the most powerful word in the community of cancer patients and their survivors. When despair is standing at your door in its dark cold cloak, Hope is the bearer of light and peace who chases away the fear.  For it is in Hope that life finds her freedom. Hope is the battle cry of the broken spirit. Hope is the flame of the bravest spirits. 

As an organization within our community, the Night of Hope board invites all to join in the celebration of HOPE, on the evening of August 13th. 

Come celebrate the lives lost, the survivors and those in the midst of their battle. Hope is the strength found within the heart of the weak, the lonely, the scared. Let our combined Hope, be the visual representation our loved ones need so desperately in their darkest moments. 

Our Hope, is with you and can never be lost.

The Night of Hope cancer walk returns this year after taking a year off in 2020 in reaction to the COVID-19.

The event is back and the community is invited to meet in support of cancer patients on Aug. 13.

This year's event will follow recent history with the Night of Hope held at Legion Park near the Shelter House. The event starts at 5:30 p.m.

Fundraising is already underway for the 2021 Night of Hope Walk for Cancer in Sidney.

The event is scheduled for Aug. 13 at Legion Park.

Again this year, there will be a “Chair-ity Auction.” Participants can still pick up an entry form from The Insurance Store to enter a chair creation.

This is a chance to apply your creativity to a one-of-a-kind chair and encourage someone else to support a local cancer program.

Raffle tickets are also available for a chance to win a Night of Hope quilt, or a Nebraska Cornhusker helmet signed by Rex Burkhead.

The Night of Hope Barrel Race even, sponsored by Lacie Vach and NBHA NE05 was held Saturday, July 24 as this year's Cheyenne County Fair was getting underway.

Additionally, $1,500 was raised on St. Patrick's Day for Night of Hope and Proceeds from the 2021 Guns vs Hoses softball game supported the Night of Hope.

Donations for the event to date include a model train donated by Andrew's Trains, a lap quilt donated by Blue Fiddle Fabrics, a large basket of products donated by Charlotte & Emerson, and a Breast Cancer Quilt donated by Monica Aranci in memory of Sedona Johnson.
