A huge thank you to all those that helped to make our first annual “Chalk It Up North” such a massive success! We had more than 80 cars in the car show, more than 52 chalk artists, and thousands of attendee’s at the different events! We were able to generate approximately $15,000 for the Just-a-Break foundation!
This money will go to ‘give a break’ to cancer patients, giving them an evening out with their families through gift certificates for hotels, movies, restaurants, and so much more! A special thanks goes to Greg Thorpe, founder of the Just-a-Break foundation, for giving our event a special purpose and heart!

And please, plan to attend next year’s festival! It will be August 25th and 26th, 2017. We are already counting on nearly 200 cars for the car show and hope to double the 320 runners we had at the 5K.
Let's make this into an annual tradition of fun and charity for North Ogden City!
