The Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation is a non-profit public charity established in 2004 to fund support services for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley. The Foundation was started by two community activists who saw a need for increased services for people with breast cancer. 

Miles of Hope has been honored with the BMW Local Hero award, the Dutchess County Economic Development Council Business Excellence award, Greater Hudson Valley Family Health Centers Distinguished Service award, Hudson Valley Magazine Pillars of the Hudson Valley award, Dutchess County Board of Health Public Health Partnership award, and the Association of Development Officers as the Philanthropic Organization of the Year.
