Welcome to Urban Hope's fundraising page for the Great Human Race! Urban Hope is excited to participate in the GHR for the 4th year in a row. Thanks for considering walking with us and financially partnering with us!
Urban Hope's mission is “raising up generations of young heroes – who are beating the odds by the grace of God – through creating safe places in our neighborhood to grow together into wholeness.” Our desire is to empower urban youth in an inner-city neighborhood in Durham, NC called “Walltown.” Urban Hope develops the potential of Walltown youth through academics, sports, life skills, mentoring, financial literacy, and entrepreneurial development while maintaining a faith-centered foundation. One of the ways that we do this is through a summer day camp for youth in grades 5-10 in the Walltown neighborhood.

Would you partner with us as we walk and raise funds through the Great Human Race for the Walltown youth attending the Urban Hope 2012 Summer Camp? This year our goal is to raise $3000 for our mid-summer overnight wilderness trip to Camp New Hope. This three day adventure allows the youth to get out of the city and experience new things. Elizabeth Currin, a 2011 Urban Hope Counselor, captures the significance of this trip, "The Camp New Hope trip is when bonds between campers and counselors really deepen. It provides space for building relationships that ultimately impact and change lives."
Your donation to Urban Hope and the 2012 Camp New Hope overnight trip will really make a difference in the lives of youth in the Walltown neighborhood:
$50 will provide the full 2-night stay at the camp lodge for one camper
$75 will provide one way transportation to or from the camp site for all the campers
$125 will provide one day's lunch for all campers
$150 will provide one day of swimming for all campers
$225 will provide one night's dinner for all campers
If you want to contribute, you can donate online by using the “Make a Contribution” box below OR you can write a check (preferred method). Checks should be made out to "Volunteer Center of Durham- Great Human Race" with "Urban Hope" written on the memo line. Please mail checks to:
