Ready to dust off your sneakers to help end hunger?
The 28th Annual Hunger Walk/Run will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Turner Field’s green lot. The event will help raise awareness and money to help people who still don't have enough to eat.
The Hunger Walk/Run benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Action Ministries, Episcopal Charities Foundation, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, Lutheran Services of Georgia and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Gates open at noon and the day will include activities such as music and giveaways.
More than $500,000 raised last year.
Participants can register the day of the event or in advance at www.HWR2012.org and click the name of an organization. The fee to run is $25, which includes a special Hunger Walk/Run T-shirt. There is no charge for walkers to participate, but a $25 donation is encouraged.
