Walk Teams

Forming a Walk for Hunger team is the perfect way to unite with your community around the issue of hunger. Not to mention, you'll be bringing your very own cheering squad with you to the Walk! 

Be a Team Captain

Ready to get your team together?  We call them "Walk Teams" but all types of participants can join a team—walkers, 5K runners, and volunteers. Don't forget to tell your potential teammates about the new 3-mile walk route option this year!

Corporate Teams 

Forming a team or making a financial contribution to the Walk for Hunger is a powerful way for companies and organizations to support and give back to their community and align with a community-driven movement that has generated half a decade of social change in Massachusetts. Through your corporate walk team, you have the opportunity to actively support your employees, champion their efforts, promote team-building, and foster a strong culture of social responsibly.

Inspire the youth of today! 1 in 8 children in Massachusetts don't have enough to eat. The Walk for Hunger gives students a platform to have a voice and take action to make a difference for their peers who don't have enough to eat. Fundraise as a school, talk about the issue and impact of hunger in their state, teach them about solutions and give them a way to make a difference!
