The Eastern Catawba County Hunger Walk Registration
The Eastern Catawba County Hunger Walk: Walkers of all ages and athletic abilities are invited to participate in the walk as individuals or together as families, groups or teams on Sunday, October 16 at 3 p.m. in Downtown Newton. Each participant solicits sponsorship (donations) from friends and associates prior to the event. Participants who collect at least $25 will receive a t-shirt as long as supplies last, BUT if you register online by the registration deadline and enter your t-shirt size, a t-shirt will be reserved for you. T-shirt requests/sizes MUST be received by Thursday, September 22 to guarantee your size. T-shirts can be picked up by a team representative at ECCCM on Wednesday, October 12 or Thursday, October 13 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. T-shirts not picked up on these days will be available at the event. Registration and the event will begin at the Frank & Sue Jones Amphitheater in downtown Newton (across from the 1924 Courthouse.) Check-in will open at 2 p.m. with an opening ceremony (awards and warm-up activities) beginning at 2:45 p.m. Awards will be given for the largest team, the top team fundraiser, and the top individual fundraiser. The walk will start at 3 p.m. This year there will be the original 5K (3.1 mile) route and a 1-mile route. Both routes are on sidewalks in downtown Newton. Children and family pets are welcome to walk with you! Once you finish the walk, there will be ice cream for you to enjoy while you visit with other walkers.
