Every September, Armstrong works to Avenge Hunger by collecting resources to help supply community feeding programs and bring awareness to the need that exists. A Walk For Hunger will provide financial support to community feeding programs in the communities served by the Zelienople Armstrong Office. Our local feeding programs that we partner with are: The Lighthouse Foundation, Southwest Butler Food Cupboard, Gleaner's Food Bank, Victory Family Church and Holy Redeemer Social Services in Ellwood City.
A Walk For Hunger is also a Senior project for a selected Seneca Valley High School Senior each year. This year, we're excited to announce Ashley Felitsky will be our Senior to continue this fantastic tradition! Ashley will learn all of the Breaking Bread's 4 key initiatives: Raising Awareness for students and people in the community, Volunteering at our local food banks for food collection and distribution, collecting food donations and money to be directly distributed to our food banks!
This year, we will be holding A Walk For Hunger in person on Sunday, September 12th at North Boundary Park in Cranberry Township, PA. Registration will start at 9am. Our opening ceremony will begin at 10am and we will start walking the trail immediately after. You're only required to do 1 lap (3 laps = 5K) but you're more than welcome to continue on if you'd like to do a 5K. We will have a raffle basket drawing and check presentation ceremony once everyone has finished their walk! ***Cranberry Township has recently made North Boundary Park dog friendly. Please refer to the Cranberry Township Parks and Recreation rules for further information: https://www.cranberrytownship.org/2658/Disc-Golf-and-Nature-Trail
We're also excited to announce that we'll have a hybrid option for those wishing to participate but would like to do so on their own. You can run, walk, treadmill, or bike from any location you choose. It gives you the freedom to run your own route and the ability to be a part of something special. Pricing is the same for either option and everyone will receive a T-Shirt. Anyone not attending in-person can pick up their T-Shirt starting September 13th at the Zelienople Armstrong Office at: 531 Perry Way, Zelienople PA 16063
Special Thanks to Cranberry Township for hosting A Walk For Hunger for our 4th consecutive year!
