Well, it was an amazing experience... We raised about a third of our goal between online and in-person donations - just shy of $6000. That is  See more

BENEFITING: Hi-Hope Service Center Inc.

EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2016

THE STORY:

100 DAYS TO RAISE $15,000 FOR A GROUP HOME. 100 MILES TO RUN IN UNDER 48 HOURS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND SUPPORT FOR ADULTS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES.

Welcome to the fundraising site for the Hi-Hope Hundred. In case you are unfamiliar with Crowdrise, this site is your standard crowdfunding website - similar to GoFundMe or Kickstarter - only they give better rates to nonprofits. So, that is what you are looking at right now. To learn more about why we are doing this, read on...

Hi-Hope Service Center is a 56-year-old nonprofit that supports adults with developmental disabilities by providing them with integrated opportunities for learning, work and leisure. To achieve this mission, they employ a person-centered approach, which, among many things, looks at each person as an individual - what are their interests, their strengths, their goals, their dreams? This philosophy extends to their staff members and is the motivation behind The Hi-Hope Hundred. Here is how: As the Volunteer Coordinator at Hi-Hope, I ask potential volunteers about their strengths and interests and try to develop activities based on that information. One day, I directed that question at myself: how can you, Nick, help Hi-Hope with your strengths and interests? The answer was obvious. As a dedicated long distance runner with a passion for pushing boundaries, I thought about doing an extreme run and "Hi-Hope Hundred" had a nice ring to it. And so it was that my run started to come together. The Hi-Hope Hundred is a nonstop 100 mile run from the Georgia-Alabama border, along the Silver Comet Trail, through Buckhead and Brookhaven, and up Lawrenceville Highway to Hi-Hope's main facility just north of Lawrenceville, GA on Hi-Hope Rd. I will be doing the run in no more than 48-hours. 100% of the $15,000 raised will go to matching a Challenge Grant from the Community Foundation of Northeast Georgia to pay for some much needed renovations at one of our group homes. While it might not be glamorous, these renovations ensure that our folks have clean and comfortable homes - the kind that you or I or anyone would want.
