StandUp and Move!

The work we do to help homeless youth across the country get back on their feet would not be possible without amazing volunteers and supporters like you. It’s because of your dedication that we have a 30-year history as a nationally-recognized organization fighting to end youth homelessness. To show our thanks, we’ve created a virtual run/walk/bike event that will unite us all together in a safe, healthy way for an important cause. 

Register or donate today to our first ever virtual nationwide event, StandUp and MOVE, taking place across the country October 8 through 12, 2020. 

Register to MOVE! 

This virtual event is like no other. You will have LOTS of ways to customize your experience when you register to participate:

  • You choose the distance you want to MOVE! Will it be 1 mile, 5K, 10K, or a half-marathon distance?
  • You choose how you want to MOVE! Will you walk, run, bike, wheel, or just cheer others on?
  • You choose where and when to MOVE! Pick any time during our virtual event weekend, Thursday, October 8 through Monday, October 12, 2020. Then move outdoors or inside - wherever you feel safest and most comfortable.
  • You choose how you want to support StandUp for Kids! You can assign the proceeds from your $45 registration fee to our national organization where it will strengthen areas of greatest need. OR, you can support youth in your own community by selecting one of 16 participating local chapters where we are engaged in life-changing work every day with homeless youth.
  • You will receive some great swag! Once you register, you can expect a StandUp and MOVE race bib, commemorative cloth face mask with our logo, and a durable sticker. Plus, you’ll get a performance t-shirt designed by one of our youth in the mail after the event weekend. And if you’re a competitive runner, you can keep track of your time to be eligible for a speed medal. This is an unbeatable package.
  • You can sign up more than one person at a time! Go ahead and make it a family or friendship event focused on healthy lifestyles AND giving back.
  • You get to choose the impact you want to have. You can get friends and family to donate to the cause and cheer you on through their support. In fact, all registrants will be able to personalize and advertise their individual StandUp and MOVE pages if they want, and top fundraisers will receive prizes and medals!

Finally, and most importantly, when you sign up, YOU are making a huge difference in the lives of homeless youth who are counting on your support during this pandemic like never before.

We hope YOU will join us in this fight to end the cycle of youth homelessness.
