Walk Against Hunger
Sunday, May 3, 2015
Registration - 12:30 to 2:00 pm
Walk begins - 2:00 pm sharp!
The CT Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is a 2.5 mile walk in down- town Hartford through Bushnell Park and the largest anti- hunger fund- raiser in CT. St. Vincent de Paul Middletown will participate for the 3rd time. In both 2013 and 2014 we had 300 walkers who raised a com- bined $95,000 to support our efforts in Middletown to fight hunger.
Our Amazing Grace Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen continue to experience unprecedented demand for nutritious food. The need for food has increased nearly 30% since the financial crisis of 2008 with our programs providing approximately 350,000 meals in 2014. Joining the well established Foodshare Walk Against Hunger and utilizing their materials and logistical support is a very cost-effective way to raise funds. 80% of monies raised by our walkers will benefit our agency and community.
Would you be willing to participate as a Walker, a Team Captain (to organize a team), or as a financial supporter of a team or walker?
TEAM CAPTAIN training sessions (approx. 1 hr) will be held Mon 4/6, Tues 4/7, & Wed 4/8 at 6:00 pm (choose one) at the South Fire Station at 445 Randolph Road, Middletown.
On May 3rd we're hoping to see an ocean of St. Vincent de Walkers all wearing the signature bright orange tee shirt--our gift to the first 400
walkers who register.
