Hunger Hike is a wonderful team or group activity. Each member raises money leading up to the big day — and the team gets together at Hunger Hike and celebrates their good work.

And Hunger Hike is FUN! There’s a live DJ, Zumba, face painting, balloon animals, clowns, the Boilermaker Special, Purdue Cheerleaders, Purdue Pete — and hot dogs, chips & water when your return from the 3K walk/hike. Here are the details.
