Run the Mountain to Give Kids a Future


Youth in foster care face mountains every day. Without the same care and resources that benefit the average child, kids in foster care face an uphill battle to succeed in our fast-paced society. Only half of youth in foster care graduate high school, and continue to face challenges long after leaving the system. NuHope Street, along with its beneficiary, Treehouse for Kids, aims to change that statistic.

Run the Mountain is an event that will raise funds for youth in foster care, giving them resources and supplies to have a positive experience in school. Monies raised from the event will help provide necessities like clothes and school supplies, funding for after-school activities, athletic fees, art and music programs, drivers’ education, summer camp, tutoring and much more.

When you register for Run the Mountain, you’re signing up to spend the morning on a picturesque trail through Squak Mountain State Park in Issaquah, Washington. You’ll stride through the tall timbers, past bubbling creeks, mossy rocks and across charming foot bridges. The summit of the mountain rests at 2,024 feet and offers view of the surrounding Cascade foothills, the Issaquah Plateau, and Seattle.

  • Spoked to Ride was an awesome event and for a great cause. I had family from out of town fly in to make it an event for all of us to do together. They had a blast with the ride, music and food. We are looking forward to do it again next year!

  • Beautiful weather and a fun ride.  Can’t ask for a better place to end up after the ride.  Great food, cold drinks and a live band!  Sign me up for 2017!
