Fighting Hunger with our Hearts & Soles. More than 60 runners and walkers were a part of the 2018 Hunger Hike 5K Run and Race to Feed the Hungry. The Hunger Hike 5K Run is open to runners of all ages and abilities who share a common goal: Fighting Hunger! It was sunny and cool — a perfect day for a race. The Hunger Hike 5K Run 2018 convened at the trail head of the Cattail Trail Loop on Cumberland Avenue, West Lafayette. The race followed their beautiful, paved trail through West Lafayette and through the scenic Celery Bog Nature Area. The latest “chip technology” was used to give all runners an accurate race result time. The purpose of the Hunger Hike 5K Run is to use physical exercise to draw attention to and funds for “Feeding the Hungry.” All Hunger Hike 5K Run proceeds directly support the Lafayette Urban Ministry food assistance programs including the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry, Food Finders Food Bank, and St. Thomas Aquinas’ Haitian Ministry including the Haiti Water Purification Project. Hunger Hike 5K Run gave serious runners an opportunity to support these outstanding local organizations while enjoying a 5K event. Photos thanks to Zoe Malavenda.
