The Hunger Walk, sponsored by the Henderson County Hunger Coalition, takes place on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Registration is at 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 8:30 from Shelter #1 in Jackson Park. The walk winds through downtown Hendersonville and toward Lenox Park and Kanuga for a 5- or 10-mile loop, or there is a 1- or 2-mile FUNWALK inside Jackson Park. You can participate in the Hunger Walk with your community or school organization, neighborhood, club, religious organization, or business — or just come join the walk as an individual. Hunger Walk T-shirts will be given to the first 300 registered walkers. Drinking water and toilet facilities are available at all checkpoints.

Pledge envelopes are available at various churches and organizations and at Mud Creek Baptist Church office at 403 Rutledge Drive from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Funds collected from the walk will go to Council on Aging, Hendersonville Rescue Mission, Interfaith Assistance Ministry, Safelight, Salvation Army, Fishes and Loaves, Blue Ridge Health Center, Calvary Episcopal Food Pantry, The Storehouse, and Western Carolina Community Action. The 2017 Hunger Walk goal is $100,000. If you have questions, would like help organizing a team, or would like to help out in the shelter on the day of the event, please contact Pat Fisher (693-4940 or lefpfisher@yahoo.com) or Dick Ranges (rroost@bellsouth.net).
