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.
