At a celebration this past Monday, it was announced that Hunger Hike 2015 not only raised a record amount but also exceeded the 2015 fundraising goal. For the first time in the 50 year history of Hunger Hike — the amount raised exceeded $100,000. The total is $100,282 in cash donations plus $1,000 in donations of gift cards.
Special thanks to the Lafayette Life Foundation for our final 2015 donation of $5,000 which took us over top.
A majority of the money comes from local churches and their fundraising efforts. The top church fundraisers this year were as follows:
($1,000 in gift cards), with each organization receiving $33,760.
The proceeds from Hunger Hike 2015 will have a tremendous & immediate positive impact on the Fight Against Hunger — locally, regionally & globally. Thank you all again for making history this year at Hunger Hike.
Please mark your calendars for next year’s Hunger Hike event weekend — September 17 & 18, 2016.
