The dust has settled and we're through not only another amazing Hunger Walk/Run, but our largest to date! The day started out a little cloudy and chilly for everyone setting up, but once noon hit, you wouldn't have known because it was warm and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Over 15,000 people came to Turner Field on March 11 to help us take the next step to end hunger.
There was something for everyone at Hunger Walk/Run. We loved seeing lines for the amazing food trucks that came out, the various sponsors and entertainment regaling the crowd, the energy around the Meet Your Team tent as teams made signs and the kids playing around on the inflatables and the Feast or Famine game. Once it was time for the walk/run to start, to see the swarm of people heading for the starting line and taking off down to Capitol Aveune was nothing short of breathtaking.
To put an event on like this is no easy task. It takes hours and hours of time and dedication to make it amazing. We couldn't have done it without our sponsors, partners, individuals, teams, groups, and so many more. THANK YOU for everything!
Even though we're on track to smash last year's totals, we're still taking donations now through March 31st online. Donate today! We should have final numbers for you soon, but it's safe to say we broke last year's record of just over $500,000!
