Attention! Monet Richardson Community Foundation would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made 2024's “Running with the Angels” 5k Run & Walk a success! We raised approximately $18,000 this year with your support.

Coming Soon: 2025 Run & Walk Date

Location: East Chapel Hill High School

Join us on our journey to raise dollars to purchase backpacks for kids in need and academic scholarships for education! MRCF’s 5K provides the funding for both our Backpack and Academic Scholarship Programs.

Our Annual 5k Walk & Run is held in March on the last Saturday of the month at East Chapel Hill High School in Chapel Hill, attracting community supporters, students, families, businesses, and volunteers. Our goal is to bring the community together for an inspirational run/walk to make a positive impact by creating awareness and support for youth.

Our 5K registration for individuals or teams opens in October each year. Visit our RunSignUp page to register yourself, coworkers, family members, etc. Registrants will enjoy a 5K course mapped and certified by US Track and Field featuring chip timing. Our event starts at the baseball field at East Chapel Hill High School with the course crossing through a neighboring community adjacent to the school. Those registered by the deadline will receive a complimentary tee shirt along with an amazing swag bag filled with items donated by our sponsors. Registration for adults is $30 and $20 for anyone 18 and under.  Complimentary food and beverages provided for all who participate by our food sponsors.
