For many years, we have attended and supported the Walk for Hunger. It's a wonderful cause and a delightful walk. Over 40,000 people gather together to walk in Boston ever year and this year will be it's 46th. Donate if you like, however it's not necessary. All walkers are welcome. No registration needed. (For more information or if you would like to collect donations to support this worthy cause, register as an individual through the link below.)

Project Bread’s 46th Walk for Hunger is Sunday May 4, 2014. This 20-mile walk is the largest walk event in the state, bringing more than 40,000 people together each year to raise more than $3.5 million to support Project Bread’s work to end hunger in Massachusetts. The Walk route weaves through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge, and includes entertainment and free snacks along the way. If you want to return early, there are free buses available from each checkpoint to shuttle you back to the Boston Common finish line. Since 1969, The Walk for Hunger has been a tradition in Massachusetts. Today, the Walk has become the country's oldest continual pledge walk and the largest one-day fundraiser focused on alleviating hunger. On the first Sunday in May each year, more than 40,000 Walkers and 2,000 Volunteers join together to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.

The 20-mile Walk for Hunger begins on the Boston Common, and winds through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not be late nor run on Asian time, as it will be quite difficult to find each other amongst other 40,000 other people.

WHERE TO MEET: We will be meeting at Dunkin Donuts across from the Boylston Green Line Train Station before we start the walk together. It's located near the Boston Common AMC Lowes Movie Theater.

MBTA: You can get off at the Boylston Green Line Station and basically walk across the street.

STREET PARKING: Parking will be tough since there will be 40,000 other people walking and many of the streets being closed off, I'd highly recommend taking the Train in - so please account for the time it takes to take the train in.

      please note, you DO NOT have to walk or finish all 20 miles. you can just walk a portion of it. they have buses that can bring you to the finish line. so no worries if you get tired or don't feel like finishing it :]

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
