BENEFITING: Hope 4 Youth
On any given night, there are 4,000 homeless youth in Minnesota and many of them are in the north metro suburbs including all of Anoka County and Hennepin County. When the darkness of night sets in, many of these youth are sleeping on the streets. HOPE 4 Youth, a nonprofit that provides pathways to end youth homelessness, is raising awareness of the plight of these young people by bringing the community together for a unique experience, The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K. Participants will experience some of the same things as these young people – darkness, loneliness, cold and quiet– while they run or walk the 2.5 miles. I made a commitment to bring 12 homeless youth home for Thanksgiving by participating in The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K. Part of that commitment is raising $300 or more in 30 days. I can’t do this without your support! Help me reach my goal by donating today here on my fundraising page. If just 10 of my friends and family give $30, then I will reach my goal – any amount will help! Let’s show how thankful we are to have a home on Thanksgiving by giving these youth a home too.
