The 32nd Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope
walk • run • festival

Sunday, October 11, 2020

Race for Steak: 9 a.m. • Walk for Hope: 10 a.m. • Festival: 10:30 a.m. 

The Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope is one of the nation’s largest and oldest fundraisers benefiting mental illness research and treatment. There are two options for Walk participants: a 5K  and a 1-mile Nature Hike around the Angus Barn Lake.

The Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified 5K Run (NC091116NW) held on the same day – so you can run AND walk if you want!

And all day long, we’re hosting a family-friendly festival with music, games, face-painting, balloon art, bounce houses, a petting zoo, yummy desserts, pony rides, and more!

And the best part is: you don’t have to join the walk to participate. Whether you choose to walk, run, or simply enjoy the festival, all pricing is the same.
