WHAT? The Run/Walk for Hunger is a 5K run or walk through Downtown beginning and ending at Great Lakes Science Center with music, refreshments and entertainment for the entire family. The Hunger Network has partnered with Hermes Cleveland to create a professional run experience for participants that will include shutting down the streets of Downtown Cleveland for a scenic route that all runners and walkers will enjoy. WHEN? The Run/Walk for Hunger will take place on Saturday, May, 12, 2018 at the Great Lakes Science Center. Late Registration opens at 8:15 a.m. Our Run/Walk for Hunger Kick-Off Celebration hosted by Cleveland 19 News begins at 9:00 AM with breakfast, entertainment and more! WHY RUN/WALK?

Over 45,000 people receive food at one of our 82 hunger centers and hot meal sites each month, and 31% of those served are children.
