Kids, dogs walked to end hunger in Colorado

The Parker Kids’ Club, a self-organized philanthropy group of 21 children, hosted a Halloween dog walk fundraiser to benefit Hunger Free Colorado on Sunday, Oct. 26. The event, held at Clement Park in Littleton, drew dozens of families and dogs and brought in $400. The funds raised will help ensure more Coloradans have access to healthy, affordable food.

Here are some photos from the event:

TJ, a nine year old from Parker, started the Kids’ Club in May 2013, with a goal to raise funds and awareness for Hunger Free Colorado because “no kid should be hungry.” Since then, the Club has grown to 21 youth members and raised nearly $2,500 through garage sales, movie nights, a bowl-a-thon and other activities. TJ is also the youngest member of the Hunger P.O.D. Squad, where people of all ages to commit to activities throughout the year focused on helping eradicate hunger.

Thanks to the Kids’ Club for hosting this fun Halloween-themed fundraiser and continuing to support our work to ensure no Coloradan goes hungry. What inspirations they are!
