The Hike for Hunger & Hope is HARC’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
HARC Hike for Hunger & Hope is a non-competitive fundraising event open to all ages. This fully supported hike on the beautiful C&O Canal towpath features 4 K (2.5 miles), 10 K (6.2 miles), and half marathon (13.1 miles) hikes, to include everyone from casual to serious hikers and runners. Participants can look forward to scenic water views, water & Gatorade refills along the way.
Proceeds will benefit HARC programs, with a significant portion directed to Micah’s Backpack, which provides nutritious food to food-insecure children in Washington County, MD. Micah’s Backpack is a collaborative effort between 50 churches and organizations in Washington County, serving more than 1,100 children with weekend meals. Other initiatives include childhood education and well-being programs, justice initiatives, strengthening houses of worship and interfaith relationships.
