Walk to Hope 2

New Year. New Hope. Let's WALK!
Support our scholars and collegians in our 2nd annual network-wide 30-day step challenge!

April 1-30

Earlybird registrations begin February 21!

This 30-day step challenge is a creative way to involve your friends, family, employees, and colleagues in staying fit, being socially responsible, and enjoying the camaraderie of a great team activity. At the same time, you’ll learn about and support Boys Hope Girls Hope’s amazing scholars and collegians.

Walk to Hope 63

Individual walkers and teams will take the virtual journey around the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network together, “visiting” our 16 affiliates from coast to coast and south of the border. Get ready to rack up the miles walking, biking, rolling, or running.

We’re excited to see how “far” we can travel this year.

Our collective goal is to walk 48,000 miles and raise $200,000!

You’ll never walk alone!  Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to donate to your fundraiser by sponsoring you! Designate your funds to the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network or your local affiliate.  Individuals can join a team, too!

Registration: $35 per walker (through March 18) and $45 (March 19-31)


Anyone can form a team! To qualify as a team, you must have at least eight (8) members, including yourself. Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to take part in the challenge.  Walk, ride, or roll together (from a safe distance) and go for the team prizes!


Support the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network or your local affiliate with a Corporate Sponsorship. You’ll receive recognition across all areas of the Charity Footprints app, reaching the entire audience of Boys Hope Girls Hope in 14 US cities, Mexico, and Guatemala. Deadline for T-shirt and Postcard recognition is March 18.

Where and When?


The Walk to Hope takes place where you are—your home, your neighborhood!


All walkers and teams will be connected through the Charity Footprints app.


Walk to Hope is from April 1-30, 2022.  Register for $35 starting February 21.  Then challenge friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor your mileage to raise even more!


While you can set your own goal, the goal of the coast-to-coast challenge is 300,000 steps per individual and 2.4 million per team of eight. Just average 10,000 steps a day for the 30 days and you’ll reach the step goal! If you’re on a team and each member meets that goal, it would equal 2.4 million steps!!


  • Set a goal to run, walk, bike, or do other fitness activities.
  • Track your progress on your favorite wearable tracker or on the Charity Footprints app.
  • Activities can also be tracked via Apple Watch, Fitbit, Garmin, Misfit, Android wearables, or the Strava iOS/Android mobile app.
  • No devices?  No worries.  Our team can help you track your steps.

Sponsorship Options

You can help give hope now to young people with promise whose families are most impacted by disproportionate barriers to success.  Your sponsorship or donation to Walk to Hope supports Boys Hope Girls Hope’s efforts to provide our scholars and collegians with environments of belonging, college-preparatory education, life skills, scholarships, leadership training, service experience, and internship opportunities to help them become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others. 


Thank you to our 2022 sponsors!
