Miracle Mile

For more than 15 years, Tunnell Cancer Center has hosted the Miracle Mile walk on the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. This walk celebrates those touched by cancer, honors those who we have lost, and recognizes those who are still on their cancer journey. We hope you can join us at an upcoming walk!

Cancer survivors and their caregivers will again celebrate their collective strength, solidarity and resilience with a one-mile walk on Saturday, June 2, in Rehoboth.

More than 100 people take part in the annual event, which brings together cancer survivors and their caregivers, relatives and friends.

Participants will gather at All Saints’ Church on Olive Avenue and begin to walk along the boardwalk at 8 a.m. They’re invited to return afterward for fellowship and a complimentary hot breakfast.
Arline Simpson, a breast cancer survivor, started the Miracle Mile walk 15 years ago to celebrate survivors’ solidarity.

“It is so important to be there for one another,” Arline said. “We are all in this together. Even if you personally don’t have cancer, you likely know someone who has been affected by cancer. This walk is about celebrating the survivors, however it is also about thanking and honoring the caregivers because without their love and support, we could never get through it. I’d also like to specially thank the doctors and nurses at Beebe Healthcare, specifically at Tunnell Cancer Center; they were there every step of the way during my treatment, providing their support, care, compassion and professional dedication.”

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the church, and the walk begins promptly at 8 a.m. T-shirts will be given to survivors. We also encourage attendees to invite those who have supported them on their cancer survivorship journey.
