Thanks so much to everyone who walked, ran, volunteered, donated, sponsored, or supported us in any other way! With your help, we raised and are distributing a record $47,000 to fight hunger!!
Mark your calendar now for Sunday, October 15, 2017 for the 37th Annual Harry Chapin Run & Walk Against Hunger!
The folks at East Hudson Media did an outstanding job of capturing both the spirit and the excitement of the event.
“When in doubt…do something!”
Harry Chapin had a goal: he wanted to end world hunger during his lifetime. So he did something about it. He raised and donated millions of dollars by performing “one night for me, and one night for the other guy” throughout his career. He co-founded World Hunger Year (now WhyHunger), and Long Island Cares (now The Harry Chapin Food Bank). He lobbied Congress and President Carter to get involved. And he encouraged his fans to make a difference.
Countdown to Race Day
Harry’s music and his humanitarian work are forever linked together. Here’s the “Chapin anthem” that he sang at the end his concerts.
