Hudson – Mary Walling volunteered at the first Walk for Hunger in 1969 as a sandwich-maker, preparing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for 2,000 walkers. She has been walking almost every year since then, raising more than $40,000 for the hungry in Massachusetts. So far, her total for this year is $5,175.

“When people ask me, “Do you walk with friends?” I say “Yes, I walk with 40,000 of my closest friends, every year,”" Walling said.
