Run for Hope

3rd Annual Run for Hope 5K

We have exciting news: It’s time to plan for our 3rd Annual Run for Hope 5K. The race will take place on Saturday, 5/4/13 8:00am at Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville, MN. The race committee and Valley Natural Foods are working together to make this the best race yet….but we need your help to accomplish this goal!

We know H4T mentors are tenacious volunteers eager to jump in and help so here’s how we need YOU!

Spread the Word: We need runners, walkers, event volunteers, course volunteers, race sponsors, leads to work with H4T schools to get mentees involved (teachers too), and donations for the participant ‘swag’ bags. Online race registration:

Get Your School Involved: Did you know that any mentee that registers for the race is fully sponsored? Well now you do!! We’ll be sending the Mentee Registration Forms to your chapter facilitator. Simply follow the directions on the form; it’s as simple as that!

ADDED BONUS!!! You fill the bus and H4T will cover the cost…now there’s really no reason not to get involved and join the fun.

Sponsor the Race: There are many ways for you or your company to sponsor the race. Below is the official sponsorship information but any and all donations are needed, welcomed, and encouraged. We know that providing a monetary donation is not always possible. Maybe you and/or your company could provide an item (company logos encouraged) for the ‘swag’ bags. Bottled water is always needed at a race. If you have a service-based company….be creative! Deadline for sponsorship is Thursday, 2/28/13…so don’t delay!

Contact Renae Pereira at or 952-454-5080 to volunteer, donate, or anything else that you feel could help!
