Our Thank You Sponsors

We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to give thanks to our 2024 Eagle 5k sponsors. Everyone who participates is contributing to the cause, but this would simply not be possible without the support of our main sponsors who propel us forward with their generosity and kindness.

THE REASON

October is ADHD Awareness Month. Some may ask, “What is there to be aware of?” Over 6 million kids between the ages of 4 and 17 are diagnosed with ADHD, and this number continues to rise each year. It is likely that you, your child, or someone you know has been affected by this often misunderstood learning disability. While we know that there are many strengths associated with ADHD, many kids who have ADHD face challenges in the classroom, peer relationships, family relationships, and at home that can have a larger impact on their success as an independent adult. By bringing awareness to ADHD, we can help kids learn to manage these challenges and get on the path to success.

THE RUN

SOAR’s Eagle Run 5k will take place on October 12, 2024 at 9 am in Waynesville, NC. This run will start and end in front of  The Academy, SOAR’s private boarding school.

Academy Address

112 Virginia Ave, Waynesville, NC 28786

THE CAUSE

SOAR is a private, non-profit organization located in Balsam, NC. For over 45 years, we have served youth and young adults across the United States who have been diagnosed with ADHD and other Learning Disabilities through high-adventure programs, including summer camps, boarding school, and our GAP year programs. Each of our programs is specifically designed to build self-confidence, social skills, problem solving techniques, and a willingness to accept new challenges.

THE GOAL

All proceeds from the event will go to SOAR’s scholarship fund and directly to the youth and young adults that we serve. Each year SOAR provides meaningful outdoor experiences to students through scholarship assistance. This would not be possible without the support of our community, alumni, and families.
