The 5k Run/Walk for H.O.P.E. is raising money to support Helping Other People Eat, which supports local food banks in Alamance County. Following the race, runners and their families can enjoy a day of festivities to Celebrate the Arts & Sciences at the university. While the race does have a registration fee, the festival itself is a wonderful free event filled with fun educational activities for kids and adults alike. Some examples of activities include: hands-on engineering experiments; original computer game designs; an archaeology dig; music & dance from around the world; exploring multiple languages; origami and more!
