VIRTUAL ONLY: Hunger Mitao: Walk/Run for The Atlanta Food Bank
Hunger Mitao: Walk/Run for The Atlanta Food Bank event is CANCELED, but
we are taking Hunger Walk Run virtual!
While we won't be together in person, we can be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community and the passion we have to end hunger. Here's how you can join in:
- Please continue fundraising and consider a special ask to your network to support the Food Bank in this time of uncertainty. A donation of $25 will help provide 100 meals and keep our essential services going.
- Take a selfie while walking in your neighborhood, rocking your treadmill, or spinning on your bike this weekend! Help us keep the energy of Hunger Walk Run going by posting your photo to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, tagging the Food Bank and using the hashtag #HWR2020.
- Our incredible partners with our Dine and Donate program are still fundraising for us! If you're dining out this weekend, be sure to check out one of these amazing restaurants and support Hunger Walk Run.
For our Hunger Walk Champions who have raised (or will raise) more than $500, we will have a special reception and celebration for you in a few months after the threat has passed.
We will have t-shirts available for everyone who registered in advance. Please check first with your team captain, company, or benefiting charity to see if they already have your shirt. If not, t-shirt distribution will be available on the following dates and times:
Friday, March 13th and Monday, March 16th between 9am-4pm at 970 Jefferson Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.
Tuesday, March 17th - March 31st between 9am-4pm at the Food Bank's new home in East Point, 3400 North Desert Drive, Atlanta, GA 30344
If you have additional cash or check donations that you were planning to bring to the Walk, please bring them with you when picking up your shirt. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternate arrangements.
The walk-up registration fee for walkers and runners increases by $5 on the day of the event. Register online before noon on March 13 to get ahead of the pack and save.
