WHAT: Eblen Charities’ annual Heroes for Hope Walk, Run or Roll 10K
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 11, 9am
WHERE: Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, 340 Victoria Rd,. Asheville
WHY: Eblen’s annual 10K event returns to A-B Tech this weekend, welcoming walkers, runners and rollers to campus in support of Eblen Charities’ outreach activities in Asheville. This year, the event’s tag line is “How far would you go to help someone in need?” As it turns out, it takes about six miles to support WNC families in need with health, energy, educational, housing and emergency assistance.
“In these challenging times, the outreach and services that Eblen provides to our community continue to grow as more and more families seek help,” said Bill Murdock, executive director at Eblen. “The Outback Heroes for Hope Walk becomes more and more important every year. It is a great way for our community to come together for a few hours to help so many who are less fortunate.”
Gearing up to be the best-attended 10K yet, this annual event draws supporters from all over Buncombe County, from individuals and families to organizations and businesses. “We are hoping to have over 500 participants this year,” says program and event director Susan Riddle. “So sign up early if you want t t-shirt!”
Organizers also encourage participating racers to exhibit team spirit by wearing clothing that identifies them or their group. Registration is $25 per participant, $20 in advance, and includes a t-shirt and lunch catered by Outback Steakhouse, which is the event’s presenting sponsor.
