November is National Youth Homelessness Awareness Month. Why does that matter? Every night in Minnesota, 6000 youth experience homelessness. Together, we can change that.
All ages are welcome to run or walk the Minnesota 6000 6K to support Avenues for Homeless Youth, a local nonprofit that helps youth move from surviving the streets to thriving young adults. For every three who register, Avenues is able to support one youth for a night.

Registrants can walk or run the 6K.
