Race Against Hunger

What is the race against hunger?

Similar to a walk-a-thon, the Race Against Hunger is a fun-run where students collect pledges and raise awareness in their communities. The primary aim of the Race is for students to engage in a fun activity that teaches them about global hunger while raising vital funds for Action Against Hunger’s life-saving programs around the world. The Race can be tailored to fit the needs of each school. If the school cannot do a fun-run we suggest either having a bake-sale, penny drive or some other fundraising activity. Each school can come up with its own innovative activity!
