It’s that time of year — time to sign up for the Hunger Walk on March 5! Maggie Sharenko is coordinating our COL Team and is gathering participants now. Follow this link to join the team or to contribute your support to one of the walkers. A youth team is also being formed — watch for more details on the Youth page.
Cross of Life has participated in the Atlanta Hunger Walk/Run for many years. In 2015, we had more than 50 participants (youth and adults) and raised close to $10,000. The Hunger Walk raises funds to help feed the hungry throughout the Metro Atlanta area. The event is sponsored by the Atlanta Community Food Bank, but there are five other benefiting partner organizations that also receive funds, including Lutheran Services of Georgia.
Walkers and runners can arrive at the Green Lot at Turner Field downtown several hours before the 2:00 p.m. step-off, where they can enjoy food, games, and live music. Groups from Cross of Life will carpool from the church after morning worship. Prior to the beginning of the Walk/Run, there will be a stage show with live music and high energy warm-ups. Atlanta City Police provide traffic control throughout the route, and nurses are available for any first-aid needs.
Come and join us as we raise funds to fight hunger!
