Walk for Hunger 2009!

On Sunday, 5/3, 44,000 people came to the Boston Common to raise millions for the hungry during Project Bread’s annual Walk for Hunger. The 20-mile pledge Walk attracted over 1,000 religious organizations, as well as 1,200 corporate teams, 1,200 schools, and 700 friends and family groups. These Walkers and their sponsors raised $3.8 million to provide food for 400 emergency food programs in 128 Massachusetts cities and towns. The funds will provide a hot meal or a bag of groceries for out-of-work families next winter.

This year, five Overdrive team members joined the walk and raised $1,200 for the cause (of course we were decked out in our full OD gear!). It was the 2nd year in a row that Overdrive has been represented at the Walk for Hunger…and luckily, NO RAIN this year!

 

Getting started – leaving the Commons full of energy:

Mile 10 – halfway there…

Once we saw the bridge, we knew we were in the home stretch!
At last – happy faces after crossing the finish line!!

 

We’ll be back again next year!
