About This Activity

Please join us for an afternoon of family fun to support a great cause.  The 5K run will go through downtown Clemson and around the great landmarks of the Clemson campus.  The run will end back at Tiger Park with food, fun, music and events for the entire family.  This is a rain or shine event and pets will not be allowed at the site.

The funds generated through Helen’s Hugs events go towards helping very special children participate in well-established therapeutic equestrian programs at Eden Farms near Easley, SC. The "Will Run for Hugs" 5k began in 2006 with a small group of about 40 supporters. Over the years we have grown by the hundreds and hope to continue to reach more people each year. We are a non-profit charity that operates solely because of the generosity of people like you, who give to such a wonderful cause. On behalf of both our scholarship recipients and us, thank you for your support of Helen’s Hugs.

Event details and schedule

The Helen's Hugs 5k is a family friendly event, so please feel free to run or walk.  We will have a prize for the overall fastest time for both male and female runners.  The packet pickup for the event will begin at 12pm on Sunday, April 10th at Tiger Park in Clemson.  Tiger Park is located next door to the Esso Club.  Please come early as lines can get long and we'd like to stay as on-schedule as possible. Parking will be available inside Tiger Park.  The run will begin at 2pm.

We will have a raffle, bake sale, games, food, and events for children during and after the race, so please come ready to spend the afternoon with us!
