Making an Impact on Young Artists

The Race for the Arts is historically one of our largest summer events where we raise significant funds from both sponsors and families with children attending the French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts.

For the 2019-2020 school year, HFWAA helped 22 college students in need and committed to a career in the arts with either their tuition or room and board.

This year we offered our 4k Race for the Arts as an at-home virtual edition. Participants tracked their routes and submitted results via the app RaceJoy from anywhere in the world. 

The funds raised from this event are specifically designated towards college scholarships to benefit passionate students committed to a career in the arts who are in need of last chance funding. We offer these students a hand up rather than a handout.

A partnership with HFWAA provides an opportunity to reach our dynamic French Woods community of both young families and alumni.  Sponsors of the HFWAA Race for the Arts gain exposure to more than 10,000 individuals worldwide who are connected to the French Woods Community on social media, online on our websites, and who receive our Camper and Alumni Edition Newsletter. Our reach globally with these special virtual events can extend to individuals outside of the French Woods Community and offer them the opportunity to participate in this event. In addition, sponsors will have the opportunity to have their logos on our website, and for our Race's, scrolling banner ads of an image of their choosing on our official app (Race Joy) that tracks our participants and spectators during the Race for the Arts: Virtual Edition.

Running is not canceled for 2020 but to keep up with physical distancing, we offered your favorite Race as an at-home virtual edition! 

This year's Race for the Arts took place on  Sunday, August 9, 2020, through Sunday, August 16, 2020.

This year we offered our 4k Race for the Arts as an at-home virtual edition.

We want to inspire the world to #SavetheArts and run responsibly. 

French Woods campers, families, friends, and fellow supporters of the Arts

 can run, walk or just come to cheer as we bring fitness, fun, and community together all the while raising funds and awareness to ensure that there is the next generation of passionate artists who will help set the stage for a lifelong appreciation of the arts.
