Organize a Corporate Walk for Hunger Team
Participating on a corporate Walk Team is a wonderful opportunity for employees to make a difference in the community, while promoting corporate pride. Walk Team benefits include:
- Team Pride and Unity - Work relationships are enhanced when employees collaborate in social settings. When employees set fitness and fundraising goals together, they foster healthy competition.
- Visibility in the Community - Let your organization be recognized as a solution to ending hunger in Massachusetts. Participating in the Walk for Hunger builds a stronger reputation with employees, clients, vendors and media in your community.
- Making a Difference - Employees feel good about making a difference in their community. The Walk for Hunger provides a venue to rally together and actively fundraise for hungry families in Massachusetts.
- Good Health - The Walk for Hunger promotes the importance of exercise among employees, as they train for the event in May. On Walk Day, participants can complete one mile or all 20.
- Fun - The Walk route is full of spring flowers, new friends, civic pride, and fun!
Corporate Walk Teams may be formed by corporate leaders looking to foster team building among their employees, or by individual employees looking to have fun and participate in a good cause with their colleagues. Details include:
- Access to Project Bread’s online fundraising tools to create a colorful, personalized Walk Team web page! This makes fundraising easy and efficient. No pressure: there is no fundraising minimum for your corporate Walk Team.
- Project Bread’s Walk Team resources including co-branded Walker T-shirts, Charter Buses, Express Group Registration, and more.
- Corporate sponsorship of The Walk for Hunger is an excellent way to leverage the impact of a corporate Walk Team.
- Companies with a matching gift program can double or triple the impact of their corporate Walk team fundraising. Additionally, employees who are unable to walk can still participate as Volunteers, or by supporting a colleague’s Walk Team.
