Virtual Hunger Walk Run Celebration

Sun, Mar 7 @ 2:00 pm

The Hunger Walk Run, an annual 5K walk and “fun run,” is an Atlanta Community Food Bank event that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief. Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance. As a benefiting partner, the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta receives 60% percent of the funds we raise to support their direct hunger relief programs.

How does it work this year? To keep this a Covid-safe event, the Atlanta Community Food Bank is working to create 5K routes in many counties around Georgia’s parks and walking paths. Participants are encouraged to complete their 5K anytime before the virtual celebration on Sunday, March 7! As the leading fundraiser of all faith-based organizations for the past 10+ years, AA Synagogue is once again hoping to lead the way as champions of this important cause as we fulfill the Mitzvah of “feeding the hungry”.

Please join the AA team, Sally’s Friends, by clicking the “register” link below, and then submit an additional gift if possible. For any questions or assistance, please contact Sally Kaplan, Team Captain at 770.952.8752.

  4. Continue the registration process for the next few pages.
  5. At the end of the process, you can register additional members of your family ($25 donation per person). Please add as many names as possible to help build our roster.
