Run/Walk for Hunger

Run/Walk for Hunger - May 11, 2019

Each year we participate in the Run/Walk for Hunger which is the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland’s signature event taking place each May to raise funds and awareness to fight local hunger in Greater Cleveland.

We will let you know when you can sign up to Run/Walk or you can Donate to help us reach our goal!

2019 is the 31st Annual Run/Walk for Hunger, and we hope you will join us as we get fit to fight hunger!

WHAT? The Run/Walk for Hunger is a 5K run or walk through downtown Cleveland beginning and ending at Great Lakes Science with music, refreshments, and entertainment for the entire family. The Hunger Network has partnered with Hermes Cleveland to create a professional run experience for participants that will include shutting down the streets of Downtown Cleveland for a scenic route that all runners and walkers will enjoy.

WHEN? The Run/Walk for Hunger took place on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the Great Lakes Science Center. Late Registration is at 7:45 AM. Our Run/Walk for Hunger Kick-Off Celebration begins at 8:15 AM. The Run/Walk steps off at 8:45 AM

Where? The Great Lakes Science Center at 601 Erieside Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44114.

WHY RUN/WALK? The Hunger Network is the largest emergency food distributor in Greater Cleveland with over 70 hunger centers strategically placed throughout Cuyahoga County. Each month, 40,000 people receive food at one of our food pantries and hot meal sites, and 30% of those served are children.

Every $1 raised at the Run/Walk for Hunger can be leveraged to provide 4 nutritious meals to feed those in need!

OUR PARTICIPANTS Over 2,000 individual walkers and teams of 10 or more participants each year to help raise money in an effort to stomp out hunger right here in Greater Cleveland. Walkers who raise $30 or more earn an official Run/Walk for Hunger T-Shirt. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraiser teams, individuals, and fastest runners.
