31st Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope
walk • run • festival
The Angus Barn • Raleigh, NC • Sunday, October 13, 2019
Onsite Registration: 8 a.m. • Run Begins: 9 a.m. • Walk Begins: 10 a.m. • Festival Begins: 10:30 a.m.
In the 30 years since it began, our flagship charity event has helped raise millions of dollars towards better understanding—and, eventually, maybe even curing—illnesses like depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum depression, schizophrenia and anorexia. 100% of the money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. And, just as critically, it helps call attention to the stigma and significance of these often invisible illnesses, which affect as many as one in five American adults.
Each year, thousands of participants come together at the Angus Barn in Raleigh to show solidarity for family, friends and community members living with a mental illness. After the walk is over, we celebrate our achievement with a family-friendly afternoon of food, games, music and prizes.
Every step gives us hope, and hope keeps us moving forward. In 2019, we’ll strive to go further and do more than ever before. We’d be so pleased to have you walk beside us.
The Race for Steak
Held the same morning as the Walk for Hope, the Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified run with a timed 5k route, with prizes for the top men’s and women’s finishers in each age group.
The festival is an all-day, family-friendly event with great food, music, kids’ activities, games, and prizes! You don’t even have to join the walk or the run to participate.
Every Step Gives Us Hope
The Walk for Hope is more than just a community event—it’s a huge fundraiser that directly funds the research and treatment of mental illness. Most of our walkers and runners raise the money they need to participate; in fact, the average participant raises at least $150.
