At a celebration this morning, it was announced that Hunger Hike 2016 not only raised a record amount but also exceeded the 2016 fundraising goal. For the second year in a row the amount raised exceeded $100,000 — and for the forth consecutive year it is the highest amount ever raised. The 2016 total is $114,407 plus numerous gifts in kind.
The proceeds from Hunger Hike 2016 will have a tremendous & immediate positive impact on the Fight Against Hunger — locally, regionally & globally. Thank you all again for making history this year at Hunger Hike.
Please mark your calendars for next year’s Hunger Hike event weekend — September 16 & 17, 2017.
If you wish to become a Hunger Hike 2017 event sponsor, please call or email Joe Micon (765-423-2691 | email@example.com).
