Welcome to the first ever Hope Through Education 5K! The race is a first-time partnership between Saint Augustine's University and Fellowship Raleigh Church, neighbors in downtown Raleigh, to raise money for the 1K Scholarship at Saint Augustine's. We at Saint Augustine's and Fellowship Raleigh desire to see the flourishing of the local Raleigh community by supporting this scholarship fund and the students who will benefit from it.
The 1K Scholarship provides financial support for students who would not be able to return to the university without some form of external financial support. Proceeds will directly benefit the scholarship fund. More information can be found in the "1K Scholarship Information" tab.
*Please note that parking will be at the Longview School, see Parking Tab for more info
