For the last 26 years, dedicated cyclists across New York state have been riding thousands of miles to help make sure that every single missing child in America is found and recovered safely. This year, we're asking everyone across America to participate—by cycling, running, swimming, skipping, or tap dancing for the entire month of September to help bring missing kids home.
Miles for Hope is back, and ANYONE, ANYWHERE can join in and make a difference in the fight to keep children safer from abduction, abuse and exploitation. The program combines exercise and child safety in one, fun-filled campaign and the open format allows you to participate YOUR way.
Last year, the efforts of participants were inspiring, and the message of hope was broadcast farther and wider than we could have imagined. More than 1400 people and 158 teams from 48 states participated in Miles for Hope and we're looking forward to growing those numbers significantly in 2021.
Register now and join a community of individuals from around the country who have already committed to start fundraising, getting active, and protecting kids during September's Miles for Hope!
We will kick off the month with an online opening ceremony on Tuesday August 31st and conclude on Thursday, September 30th, with Hope Live—a virtual nationwide celebration of all our heroic kids, families, individual donors and corporate sponsors, law enforcement officers, and all the people who make the critical work of NCMEC possible.
This September join us and invite your friends and family to exercise, fundraise, and celebrate the important work that you make possible—we're excited to see you then.
