Where should I park?
Parking is available just minutes away from the Angus Barn. There are no drop-offs at the Angus Barn, but FREE Walk shuttles will be available 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Walk itself takes off from and returns to the Angus Barn restaurant, located at 9401 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27617. Handicapped parking is available – please call 919-781-9255 to make arrangements.
What is there to eat?
Breakfast items will be provided before the Walk. All registered participants are welcome to join the Festival at the Angus Barn starting at 10:30am, with kids’ activities, great food, music and more.
Can I bring my dog?
No. Pets are not allowed at this event (with the exception of certified assistance animals). Please leave your pets at home.
Are there rest stops and bathrooms?
Rest stops with water and snacks are available along the route, and port-a-potties are located throughout the festival area onsite at the Angus Barn property. There are also Hopemobiles available along the route for anyone who needs a ride.
Can I walk with a stroller?
Yes absolutely! If you bring a child, please remember to bring a stroller, infant carrier, baby jogger or wagon.
Can I run?
We love our runners! While we can’t offer a timed, official Race for Steak this year, runners are welcome to take off at 9:00am for an unofficial and untimed chance to run the 5K route. Then you can meet up with your team and cool off on the Walk!
What happens if there is bad weather?
The Walk for Hope takes off in rain or sunshine. In the event of severe weather, we will post updates on our website and social media accounts. There are no refunds of the registration fee.
How do I win prizes?
All registered participants receive a T-shirt and are invited to join our post-Walk celebration with kids’ activities, food, music and more! Those attending the Walk for Hope in- person will be entered into our on-site raffle for dozens of great prizes! VIRTUAL participants will be entered into a separate drawing for three $100 Angus Barn gift cards. The top 10 overall fundraisers and the top 3 overall teams receive special prizes and recognition. Drawings for raffle prizes will be held on Monday, October 10.
What happens to my registration fee if my plans change and I can’t come?
If you need to change your registration type from in-person to virtual, we can help with that! Just give us a call at 919-781-WALK or email email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you. There are no refunds of the registration fee. All registration fees are final and 100% will be included in your total fundraising contribution to our critical mission of funding mental illness research.
