Campaign has ended


I can't believe how much Sierra HOPE has grown. I first started volunteering in 1990 when Sierra HOPE was known as the Sierra AIDS Council.  I will be forever grateful to Sierra HOPE because I met my husband, Kelvin at a benefit dance at that time. Kelvin was volunteering as a door monitor and I was selling drink tickets. We met during cleanup afterwards.  Sierra HOPE continues to support health education and giving support to people with HIV/AIDS as well as providing services for homeless and hungry people. I recently started to volunteer with Sierra HOPE's food bank and can attest to an increase in the number of people coming in for food supplementation. Please help us by donating to the Walk today.

For more information about Sierra HOPE, visit:

Join our Walk for HOPE and raise funds and awareness in the community of the services provided by Sierra HOPE. This walk in the redwoods is an opportunity to come together with others who care about those who need assistance, and to raise funds to continue these services. 

Register as a participant, join a team, or be a team leader. Then let your friends know how they can participate in the fun by donating and by coming to Big Trees on September 23.

Donations may be tax-deductible, as is the registration fee (also considered a donation.) Participants who raise $100 or more in donations receive an event t-shirt. Additional T-shirts can be purchased. 

Registration is a two-step process: Enter your data and pay for your registration, and then set up your personal fundraising page. You can create a team or participate as an individual, but creating your page allows you to invite friends through social media to support you and the Walk for HOPE.

When you arrive on September 23. you will choose your trail and either take a bag lunch or come back to the camp site and join us for lunch. Trails Include:

  • The North Grove trail, a gentle, well-marked loop about 1.5 miles long that is barrier free, 
  • The 5-mile trail in the South Grove which passes the park’s two largest trees – the Agassiz Tree and the Palace Hotel Tree, and the 600 ft. long
  • Three Senses Trail, one of the earliest accessible design trails in the State Park system, and allows visitors to experience the feel, smell, and sounds of this magnificent forest.       

Registration and donation funds will all go to Sierra Hope but you can choose whether to donate to the organization or individual/team fundraiser during checkout.

If you prefer not to pay the registration fee, use the promo code "Hope23"
