Take the Next Step Against Hunger at Hunger Walk/Run 2013!

Topics: 

It’s almost hard to believe that Hunger Walk/Run (HWR) time is already here and we’re in our twenty-ninth year. We’re continually blown away by the participation and excitement that the event brings. If you’ve never participated in HWR, it’s an amazing day of a fun, festival-like atmosphere with activities for the entire family including games, refreshments, live entertainment, and more with an amazing 5k walk and “fun run” through downtown Atlanta to help raise funds and awareness about hunger.

Hunger Walk/Run benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank and five other local nonprofits with hunger relief programs including: Episcopal Charities Foundation, The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, Lutheran Services of Georgia, Presbytery of Greater Atlanta and St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Our new HWR website is an amazing tool to help fundraise and bring together your friends and family for the big day. We’ve made it easy for you to select a benefiting partner and create or reactivate your team from last year. Want to walk or run as an individual? You can do that too.

You can pre-register online as a team or individual TODAY or at the registration tent the day of the event. Registration is $25 for all participants and includes an official Hunger Walk/Run 2013 event t-shirt, distributed day-of-event, subject to availability.

Along the way, we want to know how your team's doing! Tweet us @HungerWalkATL with the hashtag #HWR2013 or follow us on Facebook! Previously participated? Share your stories and photos!

Hope to see you on March 10!
