1000 Miles For Kids

High Point University students are collaborating with the YMCA of High Point to present an event on October 6th, 2019 called 1,000 Miles for Kids. At this event, students and volunteers in the community run/walk 1,000 miles around Vert Stadium. The purpose of the 1,000 Miles for Kids is to empower and support kids in the local community. By unifying High Point University students and the local community around a signature event, it leverages our financial support resulting in high-yield youth programming delivered by our partner, YMCA of High Point.
