The Foundation for Hope holds the annual Walk for Hope to fund local scientific research to find causes, cures, and more effective treatments for mental illness. This is a fantastic opportunity to support those living with mental illness in the community, as well as those who are working to study and treat those illnesses. The proceeds from the Walk for Hope are awarded as “seed” money for ground-breaking, innovative UNC Psychiatry research and treatment projects!

Want to run instead of walk? The Run for Hope begins at 8:00 am (if you would like to be chip-timed in the Run for Hope, please click here to register through the FS Series website). Either way, stick around afterwards for free food, music, entertainment, kids’ activities and more!

The UNC Department of Psychiatry has a 2013 Walk fundraising goal of $7,000– help us meet that goal by donating to the UNC Psychiatry team! Fundraising by participants can be done via credit cards online, cash or check. Each walker/runner is responsible for raising a minimum of:

$60.00 – Adults
$30.00 – Children under 12 and Full-time Students
