On any given night, there are more than 6,000 homeless youth in the State of Minnesota. When the darkness of night sets in, these youth are staying in shelters, couch-hopping or sleeping on the streets. HOPE 4 Youth, a nonprofit that provides pathways to end youth homelessness, is once again bringing the community together for The Darkest Night of Your Life 4K to raise awareness of what these young people experience – darkness, loneliness, cold and quiet, as well as funds, to ensure they never have to experience them again.
