The Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF) is pleased to announce that iconic journalist Katie Couric will be the celebrity Grand Marshal of its Sixth Annual Race of Hope on Sunday, August 8, 2021 in Southampton Village. The Race is an annual summer tradition that mobilizes hundreds of participants to raise awareness and funds for mental health research.
Importantly, the Race of Hope this year will still offer a virtual component for the thousands of racers who have embraced the cause and want to participate but live far away. They still have the option to sign up and complete the distance in their own hometowns. These racers can share their stories and cheer each other through a special interactive live program broadcast by HDRF over social media on the morning of the actual Race.
