The Hike For Hunger

Tomorrow afternoon, the Christian Center of Park City will host an event that has become a tradition in the area. The annual Hike for Hunger will bring together people from all walks of life to raise awareness of issues related to hunger and poverty and the charitable work done by the Center to address these concerns.

As a co-founder, board member, and active supporter of the Christian Center, Susan Swartz is poised to assist in the effort to bring greater visibility to these issues and will participate in the hike with her family and friends.

Founded in 2000, in large part thanks to Susan’s vision and drive, the Christian Center is a community organization that provides services and support to those in need throughout the Park City region. Regular happenings include appearances by prominent spiritual leaders and authors, seminars and volunteer opportunities. The Center runs a Snacks for Backpacks program, providing nutritious small meals to school age children in need, as well as a food pantry, counseling services and a free legal clinic for community members. Striving to provide support to people when, where and how they need it most, the Center relies on the financial and material support of individuals and institutions.

The Hike for Hunger is in its third year and will take place tomorrow, September 13, 2014 at the Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Lodge. All are welcome to attend, activities for children of all ages will be provided on site.  Check in begins at 2:00 PM and registration remains open
