To help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Walk for Hunger, MIT Alumni will be forming a team to participate in the Walk.

You don’t have to walk the entire distance, but many do!  There will also be shuttle busses if you wish to stop before completing the 20 miles.This is a family friendly event. Children are welcome to participate with the supervision of an adult. For those who would prefer not to walk but still join the team, you can register as a Virtual Walker and fundraise in this way as well. For more information, click here.
