In Photos: Spooky Duke Race for a cause

In+Photos%3A+Spooky+Duke+Race+for+a+cause

The High Country’s Parent to Parent Family Support Network hosted the fourth annual Spooky Duke Race and Costume March at Appalachian State University on Saturday. The race included 5K and 10K events, with awards given for the top three men and women to complete each race. The costume march, free to the public, was open to families and gave everyone the opportunity to wear a costume and win a prize.

The Parent to Parent FSN-HC is an organization that provides support for families who have children with disabilities. They are a part of Appalachian’s College of Education, but receive funds completely from grants and donors.

One hundred people were registered to run in the 5K and 10K and 17 children were registered for childcare prior to the event. Director Karen Hayes said the organization hoped the event would raise $5,000, which will go back to the Parent to Parent FSN-HC organization.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
