Walk For Hope and 5K

Held the second Saturday in September, these two events support our Because We Care fund that assists financially needy Cleveland County cancer patients.  Both events begin and end on the square in historic Uptown Shelby.  Walk teams and families raise money for the fund all year.  A celebration honoring cancer survivors and other activities are also held.  Many of the Uptown Shelby merchants support the fund by offering discounts to participants, donating a percentage of their sales, or other promotions.  It’s a fun morning for our community that supports our families, friends and neighbors battling this disease.
