In Tarrant County, way too many children go to bed hungry each night. Luckily, there are many organizations working to fix this problem. The Community Food Bank is one example, serving an average of 400+ families daily to combat the struggle of hunger. TCU is working to support these efforts by hosting a community event benefiting the Food Bank.
“Walk a Mile for Hunger” allows volunteers to walk the beautiful TCU campus in support of those in need, and also in support of the TCU students hosting the event as a service learning project.
TCU’s mission is to educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community. “Walk a Mile for Hunger” is hosted by students enrolled within The Department of Entrepreneurship, Management, and Leadership at the M.J. Neeley School of Business, who are learning about what it means to be an impactful member of society.
This event will begin at 9:00 am on Saturday, November 22nd, behind TCU Brown-Lupton University Union (The BLUU) on the grass lawn at Frog Fountain: 2901 Stadium Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76129.
Tickets are $15 for adults (12 years and older) and free for children under 12. All proceeds benefit the Community Food Bank!
Free parking is located across Stadium Drive behind Amon G. Carter Stadium. An interactive map of Texas Christian University can be found here.
Here is a neat backstage video showing student’s enthusiasm and passion in putting this event together. It’s great to see a group of young people working so hard to help out others in their community!
So if you can, take that Saturday morning to give back to your community and help those in need by attending this event. Remember, giving what you can helps those struggling with hunger, even if it is just a dollar or two!
Hope to see you there!
