Children take part in the Run Against Hunger challenge

Run Against Hunger

Raise awareness of the hunger crisis, get your class active and raise funds to support Action Against Hunger's work across the world.

For over 20 years, schools across France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Peru, Colombia and the UK have taken part and fundraised to support our life-saving work.

Will your school be next to join the fight against hunger?

How does it work?

  1. Pupils aged three to 18 attend discussions to raise awareness about the global hunger problem and Action Against Hunger’s work. The pupils then act as ambassadors for the charity as they spread the word and look for sponsors who promise to support them for every lap they complete on race day.
  2. The school organises the run on any date that suits them. Pupils take part with their class and do their best to complete as many laps as they can in a given time.
  3. After the run, children return to their sponsors and collect their donations. Students then take their donations to school where a representative transfers these funds to Action Against Hunger UK. Money can also be donated and collected using our partner, JustGiving. All you need to do is setup a JustGiving Run Against Hunger events page.
