Take part in an international campaign by joining schools around the world to hold a Run Against Hunger in your school. The Run Against Hunger gives pupils the chance to learn more about Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving programmes around the world before taking part in a sponsored run to raise funds to support our work.

Last year over 440,000 children around the world took part in the Run Against Hunger and raised over €5 million in aid of Action Against Hunger's programmes. Sign up to hold a Run Against Hunger this year and help us to raise even more and get closer to a world free from hunger.

What support is provided?

All the schools participating in the Run Against Hunger have access to the materials needed to organise the event as well as support and advice from the Action Against Hunger team along the way. Available materials include:

Welcome Kit

Including poster and flier templates to explain and publicise the run, a copy of Action Against Hunger’s most recent newsletter and a Coordinator Guide to provide background information.

Raising Awareness Kit

Including a lesson plan, video featuring Action Against Hunger’s work in a focus country, pupil ‘passport’ booklets with more information about the cause and the campaign and sponsorship forms.

Race Kit

Action Against Hunger can provide you with templates for everything you’ll need on the day from direction arrows to race numbers to lap counting sheets and we can even send you an Action Against Hunger banner in the post if you’d like!

Thank you Kit

After you’ve sent in your fundraising to Action Against Hunger you’ll receive a thank you certificate, letter and a copy of our most recent newsletter for pupils to take home so they know how their fundraising has helped.

What do our supporters say?


“Students embraced their Action Against Hunger fun run with enthusiasm and determination and had a great day with the sun shining and an excellent performance from all involved as well as support from parents and friends too. Thanks to the generosity of all the sponsors they managed to raise over £5,000 for the charity which is very exciting!”

Sophie Phillips, PE Teacher, Collège Français Bilingue de Londres
