About This Activity

On Saturday, October 29, 2016, join us for our 6th Annual Spooky Duke 5k, 10k and Costume March held on the Campus at ASU (Raley/Peacock Parking Lot 416 Howard St, Boone NC).


Parent to Parent Family Support Network High Country (FSN-HC) provides support, education and caring connections to families who: have children with diverse physical, emotional, intellectual or health needs; have a child born prematurely; or are grieving the death of a child. We serve Alleghany, Ashe, Mitchell, watauga, Wilkes and Yancey Counties in the NC "High Country"

Our Vision is to touch every family in our community who needs our support.

 Funds raised will help Parent to Parent FSN-HC provide:

  • One on one connections among families who know the joys and challenges of raising a child with special needs.        
  • Support groups where families come together to share ideas and information, laugh, cry, and support each other.    
  • Workshops where families gain new skills to help them help their children.
