Family Promise of Bergen County is excited to announce that registration for the Family Promise Hike for Hope: Home Edition is now open. The annual event brings people of all ages together to complete a three-mile walk to raise funds for the Ridgewood-based nonprofit’s programs, which provide shelter and support to working families experiencing homelessness in Bergen County.
This year, participants will embark on their very own three-mile “hike from home” any time before Sunday, May 1. This format gives registrants the flexibility to complete a walk, run, or hike however they choose, whether it be exploring a new local trail or even just hopping on the treadmill. Participants sign-up as individuals or as part of a team, then create a personalized fundraising page which can be shared with family, friends, and other potential donors via text, email, or social media. Registrants can also earn activity points by completing online challenges, such as taking quizzes, making videos, and recruiting others to join their campaign. Prizes will be awarded to the Top Fundraising Individual, Top Fundraising Teams, and the Hiker who earns the most activity points.
While the “hike” portion of the event will be remote, all Hikers are invited to attend the Hike for Hope Party in the Parking Lot on Saturday, April 30 outside the organization’s office (100 Dayton Street, Ridgewood). The party will feature music, games, snacks, contests, and more as supporters come together to celebrate funds raised and families helped.
Registration fees are $25 for adults and youth ages 11 and up, $10 for youth ages 6-10, and free for children under 5. Each participant registrant will receive a 2022 Hike for Hope t-shirt and swag bag (while supplies lasts) which will be distributed at the Hike for Hope Party. Any team that raises $300 or more by Sunday, April 3 will get their team’s name featured on this year’s t-shirt.
