About This Activity

This 2nd annual Wall of Hope 5k/1k will take place on Saturday, April 30th at 5:00 at Mulligan's Beach House in Jensen Beach.

Please join Elev8Hope students, runners, local businesses, and local non-profits as we inspire our community to give their time, effort, and resources to a hopeful cause.

Elev8Hope students have developed an ambitious communitywide art project that will include all race participants and come to fruition on race day.

The wall will weave together deeply personal stories of hope into a single display of compassion through design.

Runners that participate will receive a strip of fabric to write down their "hope" and tie to our wall. The wall of Hope will be a spectacular visual display of hopeful, wishes, stories, and tributes. It will be a convincing reminder of the strength of the human spirit and power our youth has to change the world.
