Description

The Northern Guilford High School PTSA is proud to sponsor our Third Annual Nighthawks Race Against Hunger on Sunday, October 23, 2022. Hunger & food insecurity remain a major issue in our local school & extended community. This year, we are partnering with both Guilford Backpack Ministry (https://backpackministry.wixsite.com/backpacks) and the Out of the Garden Project (http://www.outofthegardenproject.org/). Guilford Backpack Ministry is a 100% volunteer organization that supports food insecure students at Northern and the surrounding schools. They serve 12 northern and northwest Guilford County schools, providing shelf-stable food for 250+ students a year, including over 120 students at Northern and its feeder schools. The Out of the Garden Project offers programs that provide food to families in the Piedmont Triad area so they can grow, learn, and thrive. Help us make a difference in the lives of those in our community, especially during this upcoming holiday season! 

Quality race t-shirts are guaranteed to all participants who register by October 3 and race goodie bags will be available to the first 125 registrants. All race participants will receive one raffle ticket for door prize drawings. In addition, participants who bring food donations to either the pre-race packet pickup or to the race event will receive an extra raffle ticket. (see below)

This is a great flat, paved road course, self-contained within the Northern Guilford High School and Middle School campuses. We welcome runners and walkers of all ages from our greater Greensboro community! Please note that students who sign up and participate in the 1M or 5K are eligible to receive volunteer hours as our race is certified in the X2VOL website. 

New this year is our "Costume Award"! Costumes are optional, but you are welcome to dress up individually or as a team! Be creative and have some fun!
