Wellness Houses's 8th Birthday will be celebrated on Sunday, May 31, 1998 from 10:00 AM until Noon, during the celebration of Hope Starts Here: Walk for Wellness House.

Hope Starts Here: Walk for Wellness House is an official National Cancer Survivors Day event; it is also a way to raise funds for Wellness House programs.

Registration for the walk begins at 9:00 AM at one of three starting locations in Hinsdale and Clarendon Hills. The Celebration begins at Wellness House at 10:00 AM, with official presentations at 11:00 AM.

Hinsdale Hospital is a major sponsor of Hope Starts Here. Participants who received treatment at Hinsdale Hospital's Opler Cancer Center, and are invited to the Hospital's invitation-only survivorship observance from 10:00 to 11:00 AM on May 31 may wish to walk the 1.3 mile Route Number 1.

Starting at Oak and Ogden, you can arrive at the Hospital festivities by 10:00 AM. Shuttles will take you and all Hinsdale Hospital attendees down the street to Wellness House to celebrate the conclusion of Hope Starts Here. Shuttles will return you and all walkers to your starting points.
