About this event
About the Drive4Kids:
The Drive4Kids is a "fun-run" up the usually closed Maryhill Loops Road, outside of Goldendale, Washington. With an 850 foot elevation gain, 25 curves, and beautiful vistas, it's a scenic route not to be missed. This event is a limited participant event (30 cars) for you to experience the road for yourself. Drivers will be sent up the road one at a time, and will wait at the top, until all drivers have reached the summit. Drivers will descend the road in groups. The event will be supervised, and vehicles are expected to be in good driving condition. Safety is a top priority for the day. Lunch will be served, and is included in the registration for the driver and guests who pay the guest registration fee. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and your camera! The event begins promptly at 9 a.m., so make sure to arrive for the drivers meeting by no later than 8:30. And remember, the road entrance is NOT at the Maryhill Museum. So please factor in the additional driving time.
Guest (non-driver, lunch included): $15
The Alliance4Kids advocates for children ages 6-21 and their families. We are a coaliton of organizations and individuals working in the fields of human services, health care and education. Since 2014, we have aimed to build bridges between leadership and front-line staff, as well as between programs and agencies serving youth. We raise funds to develop policy and budgets that support better student health, address critical foster care and child welfare gaps in our communities, and support policy makers who take the lead in reforming state programs and supporting funding for at risk youth and youth programs. Just this past February, we secured an additional $1.8 million to expand services to youth at risk of homelessness in rural communities, keeping them safe and off the street, and on track for success. The A4K is working on a child welfare reform bill for 2023, as well as additional steps to reduce youth homelessness (which is one of the few truly effective ways to reduce long term adult homelessness).
