5k wilmington heart of hope

Our Mission

Heart of Hope Run for Hunger is established to help combat the lack of food in the lives of children who live and attend school on Pleasure Island. Currently there are 442 children enrolled at Carolina Beach Elementary school, of which 117 are on free lunches, with an additional 15 that receive a daily reduced lunch. Additionally, there are 35 children whose backpacks are filled each and every Friday afternoon with weekend food. We are proud to announce that the annual Heart of Hope Run has been able to donate $20,000 in combating this hidden need.


Mark your calendars for September 8, 2018. We look forward to your support!
