Please join us for the Run for H.O.P.E. Virtual 5K starting on Saturday May 1st, 2021 and lasting through Monday, May 31st, 2021 in the Chautauqua County of NY region.

HOPE Chautauqua is a substance use prevention coalition. We envision a healthy, drug-free community where all residents have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential. Our mission is to create an environment where all youth can develop into healthy and productive adults through the promotion and implementation of healthy lifestyle choices and the use of evidence-based, community-level substance use interventions. Please run with us to help us help you!

The HOPE Chautauqua Coalition is holding its first-ever Virtual 5K, Run for H.O.P.E., to bring family and friends together during this time of uncertainty.  Proceeds will go to strengthening the coalition's prevention efforts in a multitude of ways.  Projects such as the Prevention Mobile Unit, youth engagement events, future fundraising events, and educational substance use prevention games & activities are expected to resume in the upcoming months. This funding will assist the coalition in its endeavors without any financial barriers.  Please run with HOPE to help us help you!

When you Run for H.O.P.E., you are running for Healthy Opportunities for Prevention Education!
