UPDATE: All donations to The Darkest Night 4K will be matched up to $10,000 through Friday, September 30! A huge thank you to the Prestige Drywall Inc. for this generous match! The match includes donations to individuals and teams along with donations to the overall campaign.
On any given night, there are more than 6,000 youth experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. When the darkness of night sets in, these youth are staying in shelters, sleeping on the streets and in cars, and couch-hopping. Many are alone and hopeless. HOPE4 Youth is there to ensure all youth will feel safe, valued and supported while reaching their full potential. This begins with meeting their basic needs and leads to supporting them with the resources and skills needed to find and keep stable housing.
Join us for The Darkest Night 4K on September 30 and encourage your friends/family to walk or run with you. This outdoor event is great for groups, companies and families. Your participation in this 7th annual event will help raise awareness and critical funds for HOPE 4 Youth.
