If you’re looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of those who struggle to put food on the table right here in Connecticut, then join Connecticut Food Bank at our 2012 Walk Against Hunger, presented by Webster Bank.
Online registration is now open at http://www.ctfoodbank.org/walk.
Each Walk is 2.5 to 3 miles long and gets under way at 1 p.m. on the following dates and locations:
3rd Annual Greater Bridgeport Walk Against Hunger
Sunday, April 29, 2012
Seaside Park, Bridgeport
36th Annual Greater New Haven Walk Against Hunger
Sunday, May 6, 2012
College Woods Pavilion at East Rock Park, New Haven
7th Annual Greater Waterbury Walk Against Hunger
Sunday, May 20, 2012
Library Park, Waterbury
Funds raised at the Walks help us transport, warehouse and distribute donated food to soup kitchens, shelters, food pantries, and adult and child day centers in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham counties.
It’s easy to create and build a secure fundraising page on our new Walk Against Hunger Web site, www.ctfoodbank.org/walk. Once there, all you do is click on the location you are walking, and chose from “Join a Team,” “Start a Team,” “Walk as an Individual,” or “Donate.” Because we are using a new Walk site for online registration, you’ll need to create a new fundraising page even if you are a returning team or individual walker.
This year we have a new online participant center with “Walker Tools” to help you reach your fundraising goals. There you’ll find a wide range of ideas you can use to raise funds and you’ll gain access to sample e-mails to send to friends, family and colleagues to help you with your fundraising efforts.
So gather a team, collect pledges and join us for a family-fun walk on a beautiful spring day!
