The Darkest Night 4K Run/Walk to benefit HOPE 4 Youth

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

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 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.
