Step Up. Stop Hunger. Support the 2015 Hunger Walk/Run for the Atlanta Community Food Bank
Two of our favorite topics, food and fitness, are tied together tighter than shoe laces at the 31st annual Hunger Walk/Run for the nonprofit Atlanta Community Food Bank on Sunday, March 15. No crack-of-dawn start time for this event, so movers and shakers can complete their Sunday morning routine before heading to Turner Field for an afternoon outing. Entertainment and day-of registration open at noon, and the 5K walk and 5K run set off at 2 p.m. Participants can direct their fundraising support to any of six agencies that support food pantries, shelters, community kitchens, senior centers and child care centers in Atlanta and north Georgia. Join #TeamTweet or support the team with a donation if you’re already booked that day. This walk/run has raised more than $7 million for hunger relief -- that’s 28 million meals -- since walkers first crossed the start line in 1984. Register in advance here.
