CAFOD Walk Against Hunger


Challenge yourself to walk 200k this Lent and help stamp out hunger, one step at a time.

You can walk, roll, skip or stroll your way to 200k.

You can boldly go it alone and take it on 5k a day for 40 days, or you can smash the target all at once as a team.

There are 200 million children in the world whose lives are at risk from malnutrition.

So, this Lent, challenge yourself to conquer 200k, and help give hunger its marching orders.

It’s easy to sign up and join in.

The D’Arcy family have signed up again this year to walk or run every day in Lent.
