The Volunteer Center's GREAT HUMAN RACE is a 5k run and community walk that supports area nonprofits.
This unique fundraising event:
  • supports hundreds nonprofits, schools and faith-based groups
  • provides an opportunity for any nonprofit agency to raise money for their own organization
  • enables businesses and individuals to support the nonprofit of their choice
  • has raised over $2 million since 1996

This year our venue is the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. This iconic downtown Durham location will include event festivities such as a Nonprofit Marketplace for the display and sale of sponsor and partner products and services, plus local entertainment and refreshments. Parking is plentiful and DBAP is easily accessible from all directions.


The 5k course will run through the historic Forest Hills neighborhood. This gently rolling course will take participants through one of Durham's most active and scenic neighborhoods.


There are plenty of ways to get involved...
run, walk, volunteer, donate or raise money for your favorite nonprofit!
