The tradition continues

Sunday, October 09, 2016 hundreds will gather at Focus: HOPE's campus in Detroit to celebrate diversity and show the world that we are united in the fight for respect, justice and opportunity for all people with Eleanor's Walk for Hope and 5K Run. Men, women and children will walk or run shoulder to shoulder through the HOPE Village neighborhood.

Our Walk's beginning dates back to 1970 as a three-day festival along the Riverfront called Hope Happenings. In 1975, our founders Father William Cunningham and Eleanor M. Joasaitis decided to change Hope Happenings to a WALK. Our Annual WALK has raised thousands of dollars that allows us to do the work we do. 

By registering and participating in our 2016 WALK, you are supporting our numerous programs at Focus: HOPE that includes preparing children, to young adults for a successful future, feeding expectant mothers, babies and the elderly, revitalizing our communities and more. 

Please join us, along with our Corporate Sponsors; Plastic Omnium, The Ford Motor Company, Magna and more, as we celebrate diversity and unite together in opposition of racism, injustice and poverty.
