The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K is Going Virtual! Social distancing doesn’t mean we have to cancel The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K, instead it brings us together in new ways - virtually - to raise the funds needed to end youth homelessness!  
We need your help now, more than ever! Whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood or walk around the block, we invite you to join us for the The Darkest Night of Your Life – VIRTUAL - 4K on Friday, June 5th, 2020.  
The Virtual 4K will kick-off at 7 pm on HOPE 4 Youth’s Facebook and Instagram LIVE with DJ Skoolz spinning a mix that is sure to get you off the couch. He’ll also be giving live shout outs to participants, contest winners, and top fundraisers as we walk/run to raise $85,000 to end youth homelessness. 
Register online here – and invite everyone you know to join you at The Darkest Night of Your Life – VIRTUAL – 4K. Once registered, you are ready to help HOPE 4 Youth raise additional funds to end youth homelessness.  
Ask your friends and family to support you in your efforts by posting a photo or video on your social media using #Darkest4K and remember to tag @HOPE4Youth! 
Event sponsorships are still available. Please reach out to Nikki Kalvin, Events Specialist at to learn more.  
Thank you again for your continued support of HOPE 4 Youth.  We look forward to “seeing” you at this year’s The Darkest Night of Your Life – VIRTUAL – 4K on June 5th at 7 pm.  

Virtual Race
Coon Rapids, MN US 55433

On any given night, there are more than 6,000 youth experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. When darkness sets in, these youth are staying in their cars, couch-hopping or sleeping on the streets. HOPE 4 Youth, a nonprofit that provides pathways to end youth homelessness, is once again hosting The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K to raise awareness of what the youth experience and funds so they never have to experience it again.
