The Hope and Possibility® Race is open to everyone.  Runners, walkers and hand cyclists of all ability levels are welcome.  Participants can choose from a 5K or 10K Race. The 1-mile Family Fun Run/Walk is a great way for families to show their support.   Back by popular demand is the “H&P 9.3 Challenge!”   By completing BOTH the 5K and 10K races, all H&P 9.3 finishers will get a custom-designed finisher medal!  We’re working on a new design for the 2017 medal, so check back for updates!
