What is Run For Hope?

Run For Hope is a group of New Hope Academy supporters running in the St. Jude Rock ‘N’ Roll Nashville Marathon, 1/2 Marathon or 5K. We train, party and support each other as we raise funds to support the missional objectives of New Hope Academy in Franklin, TN. Partnered with music superstar, TobyMac, we run to help end racial division, class segregation, and spiritual poverty. Together our efforts support a brighter future in which we can ignite our community with hope and lasting transformation.
