The countdown is on--we’re less than a month away from the 29th annual Hunger Walk/Run!
Every year we’re excited to see what will be planned for the main event at Turner Field’s Green Lot. Sure, you’re there to walk or run the 5k through downtown Atlanta, raising awareness and money for hunger relief, but who says you can’t have a little fun before you start down the road? There’s a lot going on throughout the park to grab your attention. What kind of things you might ask? Well, for starters this year we’ll see the return of some very popular Atlanta Food Trucks (care of the Atlanta Street Food Coalition), out selling tasty morsels along with the free Arby’s Tasting Truck! Be on the lookout for Ibiza Bites, King of Pops, The Blaxican, The Pickle and Yumbii.
What else? How about a great kids play zone with inflatables, games, educational activities, face painting and more? Not only that, the Imperial OPA Circus troupe will be roaming around once again: jugglers, stilt walkers, tumblers, hula-hoopers and other amazing performers! We’ll also have the Nationwide NASCAR “show car” and virtual “race driving” experience will be on-site again…with a fun interactive race simulator and enter-to-win games/prizes.
Brenda Wood of WXIA-TV and other personalities from V103, 92.9TheGAME & WAOK will be your emcees of the day and “DJ Bigg H, from Crowd Control Mobile DJ’s” will be spinning lively music from 12-2pm. Stretch it out with Get Fit Atlanta prior to the walk/run with interactive trainers on the stage and, after you get back, jam out to the Sounds of Essence.
But even with all these amazing activities, the food, the entertainment...the day is not complete without all of you. So if you haven’t registered to walk or run the event, what are you waiting for? Sign up today!
