2017 walk/ run

About the 5k

Our annual High Country Walk/Run for Breast Cancer is the flagship event for the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation. We just held our second annual race on Saturday, October 27, 2018 downtown Blowing Rock. It was our first officially timed race for runners and had a great turnout!!

The walk/run is a 5K fun event, with turnoffs for walkers who prefer a shorter course. Start and Finish are at the American Legion Building. The American Legion is at 333 Wallingford Rd, Blowing Rock, NC 28605.


Save the Date! Our Third Annual Walk-Run will be Saturday October 26. Registration will be announced


The goal of the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation is to raise funds by organizing events such as the High Country Walk/Run for Breast Cancer. The money raised is awarded as scholarships to women and men fighting breast cancer in the High Country. The scholarships can be used for various activities in support of the survivor and his/her family—all in an effort to show the patient that the community is fighting the fight with them.

100% of the funds donated to the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation are used to provide for the needs of breast cancer patients, survivors and their families in the North Carolina High Country.

We need the support of local businesses to make our 5k a success.
