Upcoming Events

    RUN FOR HOPE         

April 27 - 28     

Hope Connections is the beneficiary of the American Odyssey, a 200-mile relay that starts in Gettysburg, PA and ends at the waterfront in Washington, DC. We receive a portion of all
registration fees and also recruit our own fundraising teams to participate in the event. Teams usually have 12 team members, although a limited number of “ultra” teams are allowed to participate. We are also recruiting teams for the one-day Potomac Odyssey Relay, a 57-mile version of the event that starts Saturday morning in Brunswick, MD and ends at the DC waterfront. Teams for this event have three or six members. To register, click here. For additional information or to volunteer, contact 301-634-7500 or
