Loaves & Fishes Spring Into Action 5K

Thank you to all our 2021 participants and all those that donated to sponsor them! We’ve exceeded our goal!

Stay tuned for details on the 2022 Spring Into Action 5K early next year.

No one should go hungry

Together we can make a difference for our neighbors in need!


Walk, Hike, Run, or Bike from wherever you are!

Join Loaves & Fishes Virtual Spring Into Action 5K for hunger and register as an individual or a team!

Help the 1 in 6 Massachusetts residents in our area struggling with food insecurity. Challenge yourself to walk, run, bike, or hike 5K (about 3.1 miles). Challenge your friends, family, co-workers and social network to sponsor you. Spread the word about the virtual walk on social media with #Walk4Loaves&Fishes

All proceeds will benefit Loaves & Fishes Food pantry and help support our neighbors in need in Ayer, Devens, Dunstable, Groton, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley.

How the virtual walk works

Due to the pandemic, we are not having an event where everyone walks the same course on the same day. Instead, you can walk, hike, run or bike on a route of your choosing or even on a treadmill or exercise bike. Just set a fundraising goal, register to participate, recruit sponsors, direct your sponsors to donate on the personal donation form we’ll create for you and complete your walk, hike, run or bike by May 1, 2021. You’ll be able to track your fundraising progress on your form.

Sponsors and donors can donate through the donation form for the person or team they want to support.

Want to walk?

Walkers and walking teams can register here on the website. You will receive a walker / team number that you can give to your sponsors so they can associate their donation with you when they visit the website to donate.

Want to sponsor a walker or team?

To sponsor a walker or team, visit the donation page and choose the walker or team you wish to sponsor.

Want to make a donation?
