About This Activity

CHF Race for HOPE 5K & 10K
Chris Hope Foundation
OCTOBER 8, 2016
8:00 A.M.




A new 5K and 10K chip timed race held downtown Memphis brought to you by the Chris Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization!

CHF has been assistance to the families who battle childhood cancer in many forms. When cancer strikes a child, the entire family is impacted. Unfortunately many expenses and circumstances incurred during this life-changing event can hamper a family’s very ability to survive and there is never a good time for cancer to strike. CHF acts as an “extended” source of relief for families with kids being treated for cancer. Though our successes are many, our measurement is in families having their needs being met during such a trying time.  We have poured hours into aiding families in need of transportation, clothing, stress relief, and even marriage, amongst much more.  Our “reward” is the smiling faces of our families.

Race attractions will include inspiring views! Scenic routes also include AutoZone Park, Beale Street, the Orpheum Theater, Civil Rights Museum, Mississippi River, Tom Lee Park and Bass Pro Shops!
Live music at the after party!  

Budweiser will offer 2 complimentary beverages to race participants after the race!  Must show ID! 

We will have finisher medals for all finishers, reward for the top 3 runners in each age group-male and female!
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female winners receive a signature CHF Race for Hope glass!  
Age group awards categories are: 0-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, and 65+
