The Move with HH event is a walk that takes place at Spring Rock Park in Western Springs on Sunday, October 23rd, 2022!

YOU CAN HELP TRANSFORM LIVES – your participation in the 2022 Move with HH event will directly impact those we serve and our mission. Register as an individual and create a team with your friends, family, or colleagues. Each registration includes a t-shirt and entrance to the post-race party. You’ll get your own personal fundraising page with tools to invite others, spread the word, share your photos and fundraise for Helping Hand.

  • ​Individual registration: $35
  • ​Individual registration (12 & under): $20


We encourage you to fundraise for those we serve at Helping Hand. Our goal is $40,000 to support the 600 children and adults served at Helping Hand. There will be awards for the top overall fundraiser, the participant who recruits the most team members, and the team with the most individual participants.

We look forward to having you MOVE our mission at the Move with HH event!

An Evening of Transformation logo for Gala event

Our 23rd Annual Gala: An Evening of Transformation this past Friday was a wonderful evening celebrating the remarkable work of our mission. 

We are thrilled to announce, with your support, our event raised over a record-breaking $260,000!

During the event, we saw Ashely’s transformation at Helping Hand and how she transformed the room with the power of her voice. We saw other student and client appearances throughout the program, and reflected on all of our amazing staff that provide genuine care and education by bringing value to everyone served at Helping Hand. 

We are inspired by all those that participated, whether in-person or at home. Thank you for connecting with us and helping us celebrate our mission!
