Join us this spring for a 3-mile Hike for Hope in support of Family Promise!
With restrictions on public gatherings still in place, and to ensure the safety of our community, the Hike for Hope will be a virtual event for 2021. While we will miss being with our dedicated hikers and volunteers in person, we are excited to connect virtually in support of Family Promise!
Ready, Set, Go! Here's how to get started:
1. Sign up to Hike under "Get Involved" at the top of the page, and follow steps to complete registration. Every 2021 Hiker registrant will receive a Hike for Hope t-shirt and swag bag*.
2. Join an existing team or create your own team! Recruit friends and family to join you. The more people who join, the more we can raise!
3. Personalize your fundraising page—add a picture, link your social media accounts, and tell the world why supporting Family Promise is important to you.
4. Ask friends and family to support your Hike for Hope campaign by sharing your fundraising page via text, email, or social media—the more people involved, the more we can raise! Prizes will be awarded to top fundraising teams and individuals—check your team's progress on our Leaderboards. To be considered for top fundraising prizes, all funds need to be made or turned in by 5 PM on Saturday, May 1. However, donations will still be accepted after that time!
5. Participate in fun online challenges to earn points. Be sure to post your pictures to Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #HikeforHope2021.
6. Complete your 3-mile Hike for Hope anywhere, anytime before the end of the day on Sunday, May 2! Take a stroll with your family through your neighborhood, go for a hike at a nature preserve, or explore a new path in your favorite park!

No matter how you choose to complete your Hike, Hike for Hope is a fun, family-friendly way to get active and support Family Promise of Bergen County.
Family Promise's vision is a community where every working family has a stable home and the means to create a better life. We empower working families who are homeless to become self-sufficient by providing temporary housing and personalized support, including financial education, job training, life skills, transportation, childcare and enrichment for children. We also address hunger through the nightly Walk-In Dinner, which since 1991 has served more than 1.2 million meals to people in need.
All funds raised through the Hike for Hope will directly support Family Promise programs and help families on their journey to become self-sufficient.
