32nd Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope
DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope or Virtual Option
The Angus Barn • Raleigh, NC
Sunday, October 11, 2020
10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
So while we can't walk together in person, you can still make an impact by participating in the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope at the Angus Barn.
Held on the same day – Sunday, October 11 – this fun, family-friendly drive-thru offers participants the opportunity to get their t-shirt, armband, delicious Angus Barn lunch, win prizes, listen to music, and more, all while staying safely in your car! Can’t make it for the DRIVE-THRU this year? Join us VIRTUALLY instead! It’s more important than ever to support mental illness research right here in our own community.
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 now due to the pandemic affect as many as 1 in 3 American adults.
Your passion helps us touch more and more lives in our community, across our nation, and around the world. Your dedication leads us to record-breaking goals in numbers and funds raised. We believe research is hope, and hope keeps us moving forward, whether on our feet or in our cars.
Thank you for pivoting with us. Despite COVID-19, let’s strive to go further and do more than ever before. Register today and join us for the 2020 DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope or the VIRTUAL Walk/Run.

DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope
The Walk for Hope will look a little different this year, but we are determined to move forward to raise awareness and desperately needed funds for mental illness research. The DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope will loop through the beautiful Angus Barn property and will be a fun, safe activity for the whole family! Participants in the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope will stay in their vehicles the entire time and will be served by staff and limited volunteers along the route. There will be music, entertainment, a delicious boxed lunch to go, and more!
Only registered participants with an armband will receive a boxed lunch. Please note that picnicking on the Angus Barn property will not be permitted – lunches must be taken offsite to enjoy!
Check back soon to see a map of the DRIVE-THRU route.
Designated Arrival Times
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).
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.
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!
