Following 13 successful years hosting the Walk for Hope, Alexandra House is changing the event to draw in more families and members of the community. HopeFest, formerly the Walk for Hope, will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at Bunker Hills Regional Park in Andover. HopeFest, like the Walk, is a family and dog-friendly event that includes a 5K fun run, a 2-mile walk, and a community and health resource fair with vendors from across Anoka County. This event will also include a Kidz Dash (for kids ages 3-10) and Kidz Zone with inflatables, games, face painting, and more. The Bones Brothers will be selling their mouth-watering BBQ; all proceeds from their food sales will benefit Alexandra House.
