The 8th Annual HJI 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk is a community-based event aimed at raising funds for and generating awareness of Hayden's Journey of Inspiration, or HJI. HJI was founded by Hayden Zavareei after she survived her fight with Leukemia. When Hayden relapsed, her family had to move to Duke to obtain a cord-blood transplant. HJI has renovated three beautiful apartments in Durham to provide free housing for families who have to make the same trip to Duke for life-saving transplants.
The HJI 5K starts at the east side of Bulls Run Parkway at the southern-most intersection with Adelaide Drive and continues through the tree-lined streets of the beautiful Wyngate neighborhood of Bethesda. Parking will be available at the North Bethesda Middle School (8935 Bradmoor Drive Bethesda, MD 20817).
