We, as Next Level Training leaders, were given just 30 days to envision the unimaginable, create the impossible and deliver the unobtainable. See the impact we made and join us in continuing these efforts.

Make AN IMpact
Every day, men and women who are currently undergoing cancer treatment travel to Columbus, Ohio for medical care. These patients and their families often have little to no resources for their basic comforts while in town for treatment. They are in need of warm meals, gas for traveling to and from Columbus, a bedroom, a shower, and a place to wash their clothing. They are without a home. They are without the comforts of their community of friends and extended family. They arrive with little emotional support to see them through the challenging days. Jane and Kevin Clark of Hope Hollow open their home and hearts to these patients and their families. They have limited space for accommodating more than one family at a time, and much of their support comes in providing the funds for families to find lodging in area hotels. We, VIP7, are committed to providing hope and home to cancer patients and their families by standing as a source of healing and peaceful recovery in the supportive environment of Hope Hollow.
We raised over $63,000 for Hope Hollow to support cancer patients and their families with emotional guidance and a loving, home space. We also raised over $22,000 in tangible goods such as gift cards for food, gift cards for gas for travel to and from treatment in Columbus, gift cards for groceries, and care package donations (tote bags, insulated lunch bags, and care package items such as lotion, gum, travel games, Sudokus, puzzle books, adult coloring books, etc.). We hosted a combination of fundraising events, both and big and small, individual and whole team, to raise awareness for Hope Hollow so their efforts are supported for years to come to patients in Ohio and beyond.
With the aid of corporate sponsorship and community partnerships, we provided hope, home, and healing to cancer patients through our support of Hope Hollow. These partnerships provided a lasting legacy for Hope Hollow to continue to make the biggest impact in the cancer recovery community. Sponsorship with local hotels will provide warm beds and temporary home spaces when the alternative so often has been the unfortunate reality of sleeping in a car in the hospital parking lot.
Through hosting fundraising events and by launching the #lightofhope social media campaign, we increased awareness for Hope Hollow in its stand as an inspiration and a hero for the cancer recovery community. We brought the story of Hope Hollow to life and shared it throughout the community to create lasting impressions and by inspiring others to give.
