26th Annual Walk for Hunger

We are just about 2 weeks away from the 26th Annual Walk for Hunger which means it's go time! I'm dusting off my walkin' shoes, the teams are fundraising and all logistics are being finalized. This year is shaping up to be quite an exciting one with all my favorites will be there....will you?!

We will be kicking-off the the Walk for Hunger at 9:30AM sharp at Burke Lakefront Airport with our hosts Reporter Ed Gallek and Meteorologist Jeff Tanchak from 19 Action News. Day of Registration for teams and individuals begins at 8:45AM that morning. Make sure you arrive in plenty of time to turn in final donations, pick-up your Walk t-shirt and say 'HI' to me and my friends! In addition to Ed & Jeff, Moondog from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Sully from the Lake Erie Monsters and Ernie the Keebler Elf will be there to greet walkers! After our warm up with Jazzercise Judy, we will step off to head through downtown at 10:00AM. Check out the pictures I took of my stroll on the route this weekend - it was beautiful with many exciting hot spots in the CLE! Lots of great scenery - both old and new! Remember everyone is invited so bring your family, friends, kids and dogs to enjoy a leisurely, non-competitive walk through our city.

After we've made our way through the city, we'll cross over the Finish Line at Voinovich Park and head into our After Party Family Social! Lunch will be provided from Mr. Hero, a kids craft tent sponsored by PatCatan's and even live music. New this year, we'll be handing out seed packets to everyone crossing the Finish Line. After all. we  want to thank everyone who shares in our commitment to PLANTING THE SEED TO STOP HUNGER!

Hard to believe that the 26th Annual Walk for Hunger will be here so quickly on Saturday, May 10th - so, don't miss out and sign up today at! We hope that our supporters can unite to raise funds and awareness for our mission. Be part of the movement by committing to help feed the growing need in our Cleveland community.
