About This Activity

Run or Walk, Help a Kid, maybe ... win a Cruise!

Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County.  We believe it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school.  Money raised from Socks and Undie 5K Rundie helps us fulfill our mission.  For more information about our charity, please visit

The 3rd Annual Socks & Undie 5K Rundie will take place on the beautiful park setting of Dorothea Dix. Join The Holderness Family as they serve as the Grand Marshalls and emcee the run this year! You can click here to join Team Holderness. All team members will join the Holderness family for a team photo and the first 100 team members get NITP socks!
