For the first time in its fifteen years of history, the Celebration of Hope for breast cancer survivors was held in Lexington in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Normally the event is held at the Frankfort Civic Center on the Monday after Derby, but due to scheduling conflicts the location and date had to be changed.

Governor Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear joined more than 1,000 participants to honor breast cancer survivors.

The guests enjoyed a Kentucky Proud brunch, a fashion show, and a parade with over 20 different equine breeds.

The keynote speaker this year was Kentucky native, actress, and Tony-nominated Broadway producer, Rachel Helson. 

Having had several family members diagnosed with breast cancer, she is an active philanthropist for breast cancer awareness.

Former UK basketball star Darius Miller was also a feature speaker at this year's event.
