Team Fundraising Page of Compass



We are an alternative school program in Coon Rapids. We have all worked with students who have in the past, or are currently, dealing with homelessness and its ripple effects. Having strong community partners to help support our students and their needs is key to being able to help them grow, learn, and thrive.

The 2021 Darkest Night 4K

Location / Venue

About This Campaign

Thank you so much for the amazing support and participation in The Darkest Night 4K! Fundraising results and photos coming soon. 


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. HOPE 4 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 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 6th annual event will help raise awareness and critical funds for HOPE 4 Youth.  Corporate sponsorships are still available
