The Darkest Night 4K

Saturday, September 18, 2021, 2:00 AM - 3:30 AM

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. Your participation in this 6th annual event will help raise awareness of youth experiencing homelessness and critical funds to ensure all youth will feel safe, valued and supported. Corporate sponsorships are still available.
