  By participating in the 2014 Walk for Hunger, we are pledging to make a difference in three important ways:
  
  - To help spread the word about the need for hunger relief in our state
  - To support and fund both short– and long-term solutions that make a real, lasting difference for those in need
  -To show the world that hunger isn't something to be ashamed of . . . it's something we can alleviate, prevent, and END.
  
  We are honored to be a part of The Walk for Hunger, and passionate about what we can do when we work together.
