2015 Spruce Scoot

December  5, 2015 at Eby’s Evergreen Plantation,     Bristol, IN

Spruce ScootHelp us continue a holiday tradition and raise funds to support our ministry to cancer patients this Christmas season!  Ribbon of Hope and Stone Soup Promotions invite you to participate in the Spruce Scoot 5K run/walk, 10K run or 1/2 marathon, Saturday, December  5, 2015 at Eby’s Evergreen Plantation, Bristol, IN.

When someone is diagnosed with the disease, suddenly life gets really simple.  busy calendars immediately get cleared and meals, naps, appointments and maybe a short walk become the focus of the day.  Faith, family and friends take center stage.

We have created an event that is a reminder of simpler times where friends and families pile into the car, and drive out to a magical forest for some fresh air, perhaps take part in an old-fashioned horse drawn hay ride, and take home a freshly cut, fragrant Christmas tree.

We invite you create a new Holiday tradition and help us raise money to encourage cancer patients in our community.

Not a runner?  Consider volunteering to help with any number of needs including food and beverage server, route navigator for participants,  parking assistance, set up and tear down, etc. Contact the Ribbon of Hope office for more details or email



Thanks to all who donated to this fundraiser.  Because of your generosity, Ribbon of Hope secured a $15K matching donation!!

October 2015 Giving Campaign

15 days of giving (October 1 – October 15)

ribbon finalYou are invited to participate in Ribbon of Hope’s 15-day $15,000 matching grant fall giving campaign being held October 1 – October 15, 2015.  Holding this campaign rather than scheduling an event will not only save Ribbon of Hope thousands of dollars in event overhead but also make it easier for you to participate.  In less than 15 minutes you can review the Ribbon of Hope website, go to Ribbon of Hope Cancer Support on Facebook – “Like” us – and share the site with your friends, and make a donation to help continue our work in the community.  Bing, bang, boom!  It’s that simple.  We both win.  You don’t have to schedule another evening activity and we raise funds to support this ministry.

Let’s review.  How can you participate?

We need you to help us reach our goal of raising $15,000 in 15 Days.  Every dollar raised will be matched up to $15,000. We have the potential of raising more than $30,000 through this campaign.  Every dollar donated will help Ribbon of Hope hold the hand of another patient, family member, and caregiver.  Will you help us continue to show human compassion and the love of Christ to people whose lives have been turned upside down by cancer?  Make a donation – hold a hand.
