HARC Hike


Join the Zion Reformed UCC Team at the HARC Hike for Hunger & Hope by hiking with us or make a contribution to the team’s fundraising effort. Join the team or make a contribution at www.pledgereg.com/4195/t/zrucc.

The Hike for Hunger & Hope is HARC’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds will benefit all HARC programs with a significant portion going directly to Micah’s Backpack.

Virtual Hike options available! Can’t make the date? Not comfortable gathering with other people outdoors? You can still help by joining us — virtually! The optional HARC Hike Virtual Event option will go from Saturday, May 28 through Saturday, June 4. Participants can hike anytime between those dates (or really any date leading up to the event), any time of day that’s convenient, anywhere that's safe and where social distancing can be maintained.

Let’s raise some funds for the cause!
