Important Details

Race Description

Capturing Hopes Photography Inc. is happy to announce our 2nd annual 5k, “Capturing Hopes Run”, in Winston Salem, NC. Capturing Hopes is a non profit organization that serves NICU families nationwide with the gift of professional HOPE photography. Capturing Hopes serves over 1000 families each year in Winston Salem, Indianapolis, and Connecticut. Capturing Hopes was founded in Winston Salem and locally benefits The Ronald McDonald House, Brenner Children’s Hospital, and Forsyth Medical Center with the gift of HOPE Photography.


Our first annual “Capturing Hopes Run” will provide Capturing Hopes with the available funding to open three new Chapters of Capturing Hopes in hospitals in Florida, New Orleans, and Alabama by the summer of 2016. This will allow for thousands of more families to be given HOPE during their NICU stay through our professional HOPE photographers. We believe that all NICU families deserve the gift of professional HOPE photography, and with your help, we can reach more families each year through this annual fundraising event.

Plan to join us on May 6th, before all of your Mother’s Day plans, and get a great run in to start your day! We encourage medical staff, previous NICU families, our fans, friends, family, and anyone in our community with the love for children and/or running to join us running for a great cause! Men, women, and children are all welcome and encouraged to participate in this event. Local community businesses and vendors will also be a part of this special event with opportunities for you to do some Mother’s Day shopping before or after the race or get a bite to eat from one of our food vendors.
