Hike for Hunger 2010

Lace up your shoes for a 5K run/2 mile walk to support Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin in the fight against hunger.  Hike for Hunger takes place on Saturday, September 25, 2010 at Veterans Park in Milwaukee.

Hike for Hunger is a community celebration that fights hunger where we live. Each pledged dollar raised during Hike for Hunger provides five meals to a needy family.  Individuals who raise $150 or more in pledges will be entered in a special drawing.  The grand prize is Roundtrip Transportation for two on Midwest Airlines. 

Take the first step and help us tell hunger to take a hike!
