It’s back! We were so thankful for the ability to continue on with our race virtually last year but we know everyone missed the hills, the smiling faces, the competition, the fellowship, the outreach, and everything else that we’ve grown to love from the North Hill 5K! We are thrilled to be back in-person on September 10th, 2022 for the 16th Annual North Hills 5K benefiting BackPack Buddies through North Raleigh Ministries. We encourage everyone to get involved early by doing the following:
- Mark Your Calendars! Plan to Walk, Run, or Volunteer during the Race on September 10th!
- Spread the Word! Tell your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc about the NH5K and encourage them to participate!
- Become a Sponsor! Sponsors help us raise critical funds for BackPack Buddies through North Raleigh Ministries. We are looking for businesses, individuals, and Sunday School classes to serve as sponsors. If you or someone you know would like to help sponsor the 2022 North Hills 5K, please contact Christian Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why are sponsorships so critical for the North Hills 5K?
According to Feeding America, 1 in 4 children are at risk of hunger in North Carolina. BackPack Buddies is a program that runs in several US cities and seeks to provide children from food-insecure homes with healthy meals during the school year. Thanks to sponsorships and race participants, we were able to raise over $46,000 to support this program.
These funds contributed to over 200 students receiving backpacks filled with breakfast, lunch, and snacks 7 days a week through our Backpack Buddies Plus program at North Raleigh Ministries. Through the support of sponsorships and race participants, we hope to continue to support this vital ministry for our community.
