With hearts brimming with gratitude and immense joy, we extend our heartfelt THANK YOUs to each and every one of you! Thanks to your unwavering support, America’s Trot for Hunger emerged as a triumphant event, uniting nearly 10,000 spirited runners and drawing an exuberant crowd of thousands more. But the real victory lies in the remarkable sum of over $760,000 that we collectively raised to champion a cause that is close to our hearts – the tireless efforts to combat hunger, poverty, and homelessness in the heart of our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. This year, Thanksgiving not only celebrated gratitude but transformed into a day of purposeful action.
