Created by award-winning Tucson artist and sculptor Steve Kimble, Aspire – A Spire of Hope – is a metal sculpture that consists of more than 100 interconnected circles, spiraling gracefully yet triumphantly skyward.

Our goal is to fill each circle with beautiful, unique artist-made glass beads for inspired donors who make a commitment today, alongside stained-glass hearts that recognize legacy donors who have invested generously in our mission over time.

The interconnected circles on Aspire will be filled from the ground up until we reach the top, symbolizing the power and determination of the human spirit to overcome adversity.

The completed sculpture will serve as a visible and tangible manifestation of the courage of Beads of Courage members and an enduring tribute to their strength and resilience.

  • Support Aspire with a donation of $250 or more to be part of the first Beads of Courage art installation recognizing our committed donors and supporters worldwide. Together, let’s Aspire to make healing happen!
  • You will be able to choose the exact artist-made bead to add to the sculpture and to make your donation in honor or memory of a loved one if you wish. Every bead was handmade by a Beads of Courage Hall of Fame Bead Artist!
  • A matching handmade bead will be sent to you as our gift of gratitude. Plus, your name will be added to a permanent display adjacent to the sculpture at our international headquarters in Tucson, Arizona.
