About Foundation of Hope
In 1984, Thad Jr. and Alice Eure, owners of the Angus Barn Restaurant, established the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness after their son was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The Eures charged the Foundation with investing in groundbreaking scientific research and mental health initiatives. Today, much of this support manifests in awarding seed grants to the UNC Department of Psychiatry and its affiliated programs. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded over 147 scientific research grants totaling more than $6.1 million dollars. Learn more at www.walkforhope.com.
