Join us for the 33rdAnnual Walk for Hunger & 5K Run. Participants may join virtually or in person as we take steps towards a world without hunger. Those who join us at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will be able to enjoy refreshments, entertainment as well as a day at the Zoo!

When/Where

This year’s event will both be held in person and virtually. In-person participants are welcome to join us at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Saturday, June 5, 2021. Day-of registration opens at 7:30 AM, the 5K (chip-timed) run leaves in waves starting at 8:30 AM, with the Walk starting at 8:45 AM. Post-run/walk social-distanced celebrations begin back at the pavilion at 9:30 AM.

Our virtual participants can do their run or walk at any time between Monday, May 24, 2021, thru Friday, June 4, 2021. Race times can be submitted by 9 PM on Friday, June 4 for inclusion in our day-of celebration.

Why

1 in 5 people in Greater Cleveland struggle with food insecurity which means 4 in 5 can help! The funds and awareness raised through the Walk for Hunger & 5K Run support our 70+ Hunger Centers and help fuel our Food Rescue program. Both work to ensure that no one goes hungry, no food goes to waste.

Who

Anyone who wants to ensure that no child goes hungry over the summer months. By supporting Hunger Network, you are joining the fight to end hunger in Cuyahoga County.

How

Registration and/or donations can be completed online at our Walk/Run for Hunger Team Page!
