About Ann's Hope Foundation

Ann's Hope Foundation was formed in 2005 in loving memory of two founders family members; Ann Harrington's brother (Craig Harasha), and Anne Frentzel's father (Richard Cibula). The two women hoped by sharing their loved ones stories and raising funds to find a cure for melanoma that others would find hope in a future where someday a cure for late stage melanoma will be found. The foundation raises funds through their annual events like the Block Melanoma 5k Run and 3k Walk held every May. The organization has become a place of support for people affected by the disease, and every event has a memorial and/or honorary survivor. The Block Melanoma Run and Walk is a place where survivors can come together and those who have lost loved ones can remember them. It is through these events the Ann's Hope family has grown. 

Can't attend?  Please consider a DONATION in lieu of participating.
