Drive-Thru 2021

 33rd Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope

We’re Pivoting Again!! 

DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope or Virtual Option

The Angus Barn • Raleigh, NC
Sunday, October 10, 2021
10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

We're back to pivoting again to another DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope! Although COVID-19 continues to change all of our plans, we are excited to still have a way to honor our flagship charity event that has helped raise millions of dollars towards better understanding and treatments of illnesses like depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum depression, schizophrenia, and anorexia.

This is not a decision that was made lightly, and we can't do this without you. 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 10 – 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 or make a DONATION! 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.

It's going to be BIGGER and BETTER than last year - you won't want to miss this! Bring the whole family out - dogs too! - for this exciting experience. Register today and join us for the 2021 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 and will be served by staff and volunteers along the route. There will be music, entertainment, a delicious boxed lunch to go, prizes, giveaways, and more! It's going to be an EPIC EXPERIENCE you don't want to miss!
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. We suggest Umstead Park as a fantastic location to celebrate with your team!

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). Don't worry - we'll make sure that we have PLENTY of goodies for every participant, whether you come at 10:30 or at 1:30! 

  1. 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.

  2. 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!


If you cannot attend the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope, or would prefer to support us from afar, we’d love to have you join us VIRTUALLY on October 10! You get to pick the details of your virtual experience: what time, where, and how far you go.

Registration for the VIRTUAL Walk/Run includes a t-shirt and armband, and your registration fee can be fundraised! Participants are welcome to pick up their t-shirts and armbands at the Early Check-In Days or we will be happy to mail them to you after the DRIVE-THRU event.
It’s easy...
  1. Register for the VIRTUAL Walk/Run!
  2. Fundraise – our virtual participants can still raise money and make a huge difference!
  3. Walk or run when and where you want – you’re not timed, so you get to create your own special experience!
  4. Take photos and videos of your activity, and tag us on social media using the hashtag #WalkforHope
  5. Win Prizes – we’ll do a drawing for three $100 Angus Barn gift cards just for our VIRTUAL participants!

Virtual participants can download resources here to help with fundraising and spreading the word! Email us at or call us at 919-781-WALK with any questions.

Race for Steak
Unfortunately, we are not offering an in-person/timed Race for Steak this year. We encourage runners to join us for the DRIVE-THRU Walk for Hope, or to sign up for the VIRTUAL Walk/Run.

Early Check-In Days
Beat the crowd and save time! Prior to Event Day, participants can register, turn in collection envelopes, and pick up T-shirts and armbands at the Angus Barn.

We STRONGLY encourage all participants – DRIVE-THRU and VIRTUAL - to pre-register and attend Early Check-In days.

  • Friday, October 8: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Saturday October 9: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Fundraising - Go above and beyond!
The Walk for Hope is more than just a community walk - it's a huge fundraiser that directly supports the research and treatment of mental illness. Most of our Walkers raise the money they need to participate - the average participant in the Walk for Hope raises a minimum of $150. Help us make this 33rd year our biggest fundraising effort ever!

Please note that all registration fees are final and 100% will be included in your total fundraising contribution to our critical mission of funding mental illness research.
