Hike for Hope

Lace up your sneakers and step into spring— the Family Promise Hike for Hope is here for 2024!

Spring is in the air, which means that the Family Promise Hike for Hope is just around the corner! Join us on Sunday, May 5 at Van Neste Square Memorial Park in Ridgewood for a three-mile walk in support of the children and parents that Family Promise serves.

For more than 30 years, the Hike for Hope has brought families, students, local businesses, congregations, scout troops, volunteer organizations, and individuals of all ages together to bring awareness to homelessness and to raise funds for Family Promise’s vital programs. Participants compete in online fundraising and complete fun, virtual activities leading up to the event in May, when we’ll embark on our “hike” through downtown Ridgewood. Afterwards, we’ll return to Van Neste Square for an afternoon of activities, giveaways, music, snacks, contests, and more!

All proceeds from the Hike for Hope will benefit Family Promise of Bergen County’s housing, support, and meal programs for working families with children facing homelessness and hunger.

Here’s how to get started:
Register here   to form a team, join an existing one, or sign up as an individual. Then, create your own personalized fundraising page and tell the world why you’re participating in the Family Promise Hike for Hope! You’ll also be able to connect with supporters via social media, track your fundraising goals, and complete challenges to collect activity points. Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Top Fundraising Team
  • Top Individual Fundraiser (not on a team)
  • Most Activity Points

All teams and individual Hikers who are not part of a team that raise $350 or more by Wednesday, April 10, 2024 will have their name featured on this year’s Family Promise Hike for Hope t-shirt, which all participants will receive!

Registration Fees
Adults & Kids 12 and up: $30 per person
Kids ages 6-11: $15 per person
Children 5 and under: Free

Happy hiking and thank you for supporting Family Promise of Bergen County!

Hike for Hope is a great activity for kids and teens looking for service hours for school, community projects, and more. Upon request, those who register for the event, set up their fundraising page, and participate in our walk will receive a certificate validating their participation.
