Where will the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope take place?
The DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope will loop through the beautiful Angus Barn property. It will be a fun, safe activity for the whole family!

There will be music, entertainment, a delicious boxed lunch to go, and more!

What is my designated arrival time?
To minimize traffic issues on event day, we are staggering car arrival times. Participants must come during their assigned time window, designated by last name (see chart below).
a. If you are in the same vehicle as friends or family with different last names, please come at the time designated for the driver’s last name.
b. If your team is planning to picnic together offsite after the DRIVE-THRU event, please have your team captain give us a call and we will be happy to assign a team time slot that accommodates your group!
What do I do when I arrive?
We’ll have staff onsite to help point your car in the right direction and answer any questions you have!
- Participants who are PRE-REGISTERED (including those already checked-in) arriving with T-shirt and event armband will be directed up the driveway to the entrance checkpoint
- Participants who need to register, need to turn in money or those with questions will be directed to the onsite registration area
Please note only registered participants will receive T-shirts and boxed lunches.
How do I turn in my fundraising money?
At the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope, there will be an area to turn in your fundraising dollars and collection envelopes. However, due to public health requirements and social distancing guidelines, staff will be extremely limited. We strongly encourage all participants to come by one of our Early Check-In days to save time on Event day!
What is there to eat?
To-go boxed lunches will be given to all registered participants of the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope! Delicious and freshly prepared Angus Barn burgers will be chargrilled in the Angus Barn’s kitchen and packed to go with all sides, condiments, and utensils. Please remain in your vehicle – servers will come to you. Picnicking on the Angus Barn property is not permitted – to go boxed lunches must be consumed offsite.
Can I park to eat or take photos with my family/team onsite?
For the safety of our staff, volunteers, and participants, there will be NO PARKING available at the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope. Participants must remain in their vehicles at all times as they loop through the Angus Barn property. Picnicking on the Angus Barn property is not permitted – to go boxed lunches must be consumed offsite. We LOVE photos though – we’ll have photographers on Event day, and we encourage all our DRIVE-THRU “Walkers” to send us their photos or use #WalkforHope and post on social media!
What happens if there is bad weather?
The DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope will take place rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, we will post updates on our website and social media accounts. There will be no refunds of the registration fee.
Will you have bathroom facilities?
Port-a-potties will be available onsite along the DRIVE-THRU route. Please notify a volunteer if you need to use them so they can direct you appropriately. Masks will be required should you need to leave your vehicle.
How do I win prizes?
All registered participants receive a T-shirt. Those attending the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope will be entered into our on-site raffle for dozens of great prizes! VIRTUAL Walk/Run participants will be entered into a separate drawing for three $100 Angus Barn gift cards.

Can I come to the DRIVE-THRU and still walk/run?
YES! You can come to the DRIVE-THRU event AND walk/run virtually with us. You can walk or run in your neighborhood, at Umstead Park, Durant Park, wherever you want – just be sure to take pictures and tag us on social media using #Walkforhope so we can like and share!
I need to change my registration type – what do I do?
