The Capturing Hopes 3rd annual Run for NICU Hope 5K will be held at Shallowford Square in Lewisville, NC. The “Run for NICU Hope” supports hospital photography programs nationwide for the Capturing Hopes Network. Whether you are a runner, a power walker, or a casual walker, come out on a beautiful May day and help to give Hope to NICU families while working out with your family, friends, and/or co-workers! Get a team together to make it an even more exciting day for you!


Join us during and after the 5k for a family fun event featuring music, vendors, food trucks, face painting and more. Bring your whole family out for a full day of activities; there will be something for everyone!


5k and family fun day is presented by Mitchell Prime Properties.


There will be several opportunities on race day, other than running in the 5k, to be able to join in our efforts to spread HOPE in the NICU. Check out our Markers of Hope and Hoots for Hope! Markers of Hope are available to sponsor before race day. Hoots for Hope will be available before race day and throughout race day activities.



Do you give a hoot about hope?

Give a Hoot between now and May 1st and your name will be 

displayed at our 5K on the Hoots for Hope wall as someone 

who gives a hoot about hope!

– Our Little Hoots are approximately 3 inches tall.

– They will come with a tag with the name of the Hoot Giver/Sponsor.

–  Every Hoot purchased will go to live with a NICU baby in Brenner Children’s Hospital or Forsyth Medical Center.

–  Each Hoot will be near the baby either in their bed or hanging close by to provide Hope to them and their families. This is a small gesture that could brighten someones’ day!



 Join us at Shallowford Square following the 5K for a Mommy and Me photo session just in time for Mother’s Day. Each 5 minute session will include a digital image that will be edited and emailed with-in two weeks, and the photo print release. $10 each 5 minute session. Add additional photos for only $10 per photo.



We are so excited to announce our vendors, sponsors and food trucks that will join us on race day to help spread HOPE in the NICU. Please visit back with us frequently as we continually update our lists!
