AN EXPO LIKE NO OTHER

Since founding , The Vapers Carnivale has been committed to introducing Adult Smokers to Harm reducing vapor products. Part of that effort is ensuring that the states that we do business in have adequate funding for lobbyists and state level vapor trade association efforts. Thanks to the support from our sponsors, they have introduced over 634 Adult American Smokers to vapor products over the first year of business, and have contributed over $30,000 to our participating advocacy organizations.

31st Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk/Run for Hope: Raleigh, NC @ Angus Barn
Oct 13 @ 10:00 am
31st Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk/Run for Hope: Raleigh, NC @ Angus Barn

In the nearly 31 years since it began, our flagship charity event has helped raise millions of dollars towards better understanding—and, eventually, maybe even curing—illnesses like depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum depression, schizophrenia, and anorexia. 100% of the money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. And, as critically, it helps call attention to the stigma and significance of these often invisible illnesses, which affect as many as 1 in 5 American adults.

Each year, thousands of participants come together at the Angus Barn in Raleigh to show solidarity for family, friends, and community members living with a mental illness. After the walk is over, we celebrate our achievement with a family-friendly afternoon of food, games, music, and prizes.

Every step gives us hope, and hope keeps us moving forward. In 2019, we’ll strive to go further, and do more, than ever before. We’d be so pleased to have you walk beside us.

Walk, Run, and Festival

All participants will receive a wristband for admission to the Walk for Hope, the Race for Steak, and to the festival. 
Walk, run, or stay at the Angus Barn to enjoy the festivities!
