Over the last 19 years, HOC has raised over $3 million to maintain these necessary resources right here in the South Central Indiana. Thank you to our community partners and sponsors for their generosity and continued commitment to our cause!

We look forward to seeing you on September 28th at IU Memorial Stadium to run in memory of a loved one, walk in honor of someone battling cancer, or simply gather a fun team for a fantastic cause!
