Congratulations Hunger Champions, you crossed the Rise & Strideâ„¢ finish line strong this weekend!

For those who participated in the race, cheered on the sidelines, donated to the cause, and shared with friends and family, THANK YOU! You all went above and beyond to bring education, recovery, and opportunity to the communities we serve around the world.

We know we are all Hunger Champions, but let’s highlight our Rise & Strideâ„¢ Champions – drum roll please!


Out of 681 racers participating, from 20 different countries, you were a top finisher! We are giving you a virtual high five for not only being hunger champions, but Rise & Strideâ„¢ Champions too. When we race to end hunger together, we are all champions!

Altogether, because of our dedicated supporters, we raised $114,612.76 to continue our mission to end world hunger and empower communities worldwide.

Everyday, children walk an average of 3 miles to school in the communities we serve, and this weekend you honored their walk by participating in Rise & Stride – again, thank you.

We can’t wait to Rise & Strideâ„¢ to end world hunger together again next year!
