Maria's Field of Hope 2018

Event Details

34925 Chester Road. Just west of southwest corner of Jaycox and Chester Road in Avon, Ohio.

Thank you for visiting! The field is now ready for harvest.


The Prayers from Maria Foundation first planted the Sunflower field in 2014 to gracefully draw attention to the lack of funding for childhood cancer.  The field was inspired by the memory and spirit of Maria McNamara, planted as a way to love and honor the courageous children who are battling cancer and those we have lost.


The field is located off exit 155 along I-90 in Avon, Ohio. Go north off of the exit at Lear Nagle and take a left at the first intersection, Chester Road. Go west on Chester to the intersection at Jaycox Road. Turn left on Jaycox, then an immediate right into the field. Parking will be available at the field.


Maria's Shop is closed for the season. Please visit Maria's online shop to purchase your favorite Prayers From Maria gear!

Special thanks to The Jacobs Group, Lowes, and Farmer John Betzel of County Line Farms for making this field possible.

In August 2016 the City of Avon declared the Sunflower to be the Official Flower of the City of Avon in honor of Maria McNamara and the Sunflower Field she inspired.
