Hunger Walk Registration

There are numerous organizations dedicated to addressing the problem of food insecurity in the community, including Morton Memorial and the Community Action Committee. Through a joint effort in the second annual Hunger Walk, the Monteagle Sewanee Rotary hopes to raise awareness about these hunger issues as well as raise money to help end them.
The easiest way to help out is to register to walk. Registration is free for children under 12, $10 for students and $20 for adults. Register to walk at
Registration may also be completed on the day of the walk, Saturday, Sept. 3. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the walk starting at 10 a.m. Each walker will receive a T-Shirt and a sticker showing “Hunger is NOT a Game 2nd Annual Rotary Hunger Walk.”
After the walkers complete the 10 K (6.3 mile) course from Angel Park to Pearls and back they will be treated to a noon barbecue lunch.
Another option to support The Hunger Walk is to be a community partner through sponsorships. By donating $250, businesses and individuals can become sponsors and have their logo/name featured on Hunger Walk posters and participant T-shirts.
