The numbers are in! The Atlanta Hunger Walk/Run, which took place March 10 in downtown Atlanta, raised more than $341,000 to fight hunger. The funds raised will support the food pantries, shelters, community kitchens, senior centers and child care centers that need it most.
More than 15,000 people walked, ran, volunteered, and raised money to accomplish this important goal.
The ACFB is still accepting online donations through March 31 and cash or check donations through April 5, so it’s not too late to give.
Several Atlanta companies, including Perennial Properties which raised $775 (pictured below), created company teams and encouraged employee participation in the event.
Participants are already looking forward to next year’s event. The date for the 2014 Hunger Walk/Run, which will also be the 30th anniversary of the event, will be announced soon!
