Visit the Field
UPDATE: As many of our faithful supporters know, Maria's Field of Hope in Avon, not being our own property, has struggled with soil quality for the last few years. We are beginning to bloom now with shorter sunflowers that will be with us for just a short time. The field is open from sunup to sundown. Visit Maria's Shop at the field seven days a week from 10 am - 8 pm per volunteer staff availability. To volunteer at Maria's shop, click here.
There is no fee to visit the fields, but we do accept donations as they help us bring more targeted, life-saving treatments to children battling deadly brain tumors. Every dollar you donate brings us one step closer to a cure.

Maria’s Field of Hope-Avon is located at the corner of Chester and Jaycox Rds. It is visible north of Interstate 90, between the Lear-Nagle and SR 83 exits.
