Hope Week

Hope Week (Helping Others Persevere and Excel) was originally instituted by the New York Yankees in 2009, the Morehead City Marlins look to replicate HOPE Week at Big Rock Stadium. Hope Week’s main objective is to shed light on extraordinary people in Carteret County.  Hope Week’s initiative is rooted in the fundamental belief that acts of goodwill provide hope and encouragement to more than just the recipient of the gesture.  The Marlins wish to provide a platform so that these inspirational messages can be heard and understood through the game of baseball.

We seek to reward the honorees in a special way for their unselfish accomplishments. Hope Week is also designed to raise awareness for special causes and social issues. Hopefully, these acts of goodwill will be duplicated by others whom have witnessed it as well.  Marlins HOPE Week is all about the recognition of the most interesting and inspirational groups of people in Carteret County.
