Hike for Hope

Family Promise Hike for Hope:
Breaking the Cycle of Family Homelessness

Save the Date for Sunday, May 5th and keep an eye out for registration details – coming soon!

Exciting News!

We are excited to announce a family-friendly community event to benefit Family Promise of Bergen County – the Family Promise Hike for Hope!

Due to various circumstances, and most importantly the safety of our participants, our annual event formerly known as the Hike or Bike will now be the Family Promise Hike for Hope – a 3-mile walk for people of all ages and abilities.

The Hike for Hope will be very much like the Hike or Bike – a fun way for people to come together to support Family Promise’s vision: to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness for working families. All funds raised will support Family Promise’s programs serving families in need, right here in Bergen County.

The big change is that we are no longer able to have our participants riding bikes, as the bike paths and roads have become too busy for a safe ride. However many of the elements you know and love will remain the same: 

• Sunday, May 5 at 1:00 (Check-in opens at 12:00)
• Registration $25 per person ages 11 and up; Children 5 and under are FREE
• NEW! Registration for children ages 5-10 (hiking with a parent) is now only $10 per person
• Begin and end in Van Neste Square in the heart of Ridgewood
• Create your own fundraising page to ask friends and family to support your Hike – prizes for top        fundraisers!
• Form a team or hike on your own, all at your own pace   
• 3-Mile Route through Ridgewood with Water Stops
• Food – Hot Dogs! Cotton Candy! Popcorn and more!
• Fun for all – music from DJ Scott Reddin, crafts, games and giveaways
• Free t-shirt and goody bag for all registered hikers

Please join us!
