Hunger Walk Facts-

- The Hunger Walk is a 5k (3.1 mile) walk along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront.

- The event will take place rain or shine on June 29th. Registration begins at 7am and the walk begins at 8:30am at Soldier Field in Chicago.

- Each person walking on behalf of CCO supplements our food budget by 214 pounds.

- Over the past two years hunger walkers have supplemented CCO’s food budget by 14,980 pounds.

- CCO served over 200,000 meals to hungry Chicagoans in 2012.

- Every person registered at the hunger walk counts! That means a small child or an infant in a stroller will still supplement our food budget by 214 pounds.

- Sign-up online to join the Hunger Walk on behalf of CCO here. You will be redirected to the CCO Team page. Once you arrive there scroll down and click on the “Join Team” button.
