On September 27th, Headbands of Hope is hosting the first ever Sweat Hope 5k and Festival for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month at Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, NC.
Each female race registration will receive a headband and donate a headband to a girl at UNC and Duke Hospitals. Each male registration will receive a hat and donate a buff for a boy at the hospital.

Awards will be given to the first ten male finishers as well as the first ten women finishers.


The 5k starts at 9 am sharp.  Awards will be given at 10:30. 


At 10 a.m. we will have a kids potato sack race benefitting the St. Baldrick's Foundation! Register for a minimum donation of $3 per racer here on the St. Baldrick's site.
