Hunger Hike 5K set for this weekend

Apr 17, 2013

A fundraising event this weekend is moving to higher ground.

The Hunger Hike 5K has been moved to Munger Park in Lafayette due to flooding along the Wabash Heritage Trail.

The event benefits the Lafayette Urban Ministry, Food Finders Food Bank, and the St. Thomas Aquinas Haiti Ministry.

LUM executive director Joe Micon says for the past few years, the 5K was part of the annual Hunger Hike in September.

But he says it made more sense to develop it into a separate event.

The race begins at nine o’clock Saturday morning.

More information is on the Lafayette Urban Ministry website.
