The 2019 Darkest Night 4K

(63 photos)

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2020 Darkest Night VIRTUAL 4K. More than 440 people took part virtually and helped to raise more than $60,000 for HOPE 4 Youth.

“It’s almost been a year since I left HOPE Place. HOPE 4 Youth has not only given me a place to live, but also helped me out with things such as paying rent and my phone bill, giving me access to food, etc. Whatever I needed, HOPE 4 Youth was the first to help. I’m grateful for this organization and its volunteers for donating time and resources to helping at-risk youth. The two years that I was homeless was very scary and rocky. HOPE 4 Youth helped me through that and continues look after me. Thank you for always being there!” – TJayy, former HOPE Place resident

Young people like TJayy are the reason we continue to come together for The Darkest Night 4K. We hope that you’ll join us for this year’s fundraiser!
