Join Two Men and a Mom’s Team at Walk For Hope!
About the 29th Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope:
The Angus Barn • Raleigh, NC
Sunday, October 8, 2017
Onsite Registration: 8 a.m. • Walk Begins: 10 a.m.
In the nearly 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, as critically, it helps call attention to the stigma and significance of these often invisible illnesses, which affect as many as 1 in 5 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 2017, we’ll strive to go further, and do more, than ever before. We’d be so pleased to have you walk beside us.
