It’s easy to register as an Individual solo hiker or to Start a Team of hikers on our Crowdrise page.
All hikers (solo individuals and hikers on a team) pledge to raise $50 to support Our Food, Our Right’s publication by asking their friends, family, co-workers, and community to donate just $5, or $10, or $15, or more to support great work.
Teams make an even bigger impact by getting together a whole group of hikers for a day of fun, each of whom will raise $50. Bonus points for witty team names! Crowdrise makes it easy to meet your pledge goal – it provides you with an individual fundraising page to send out to supporters, tracks donations, and some tools (CAGJ will also provide you with a fundraising toolkit as well).

This event is part of CAGJ’s Community Supported Publishing campaign, as we need your help to raise $5,000 to design and print our book with the quality necessary to distribute to libraries, book-sellers & food justice organizers throughout the land. We’re also seeking organizational sponsors, with benefits ranging from your logo printed in each book, to books donated in your name to your favorite organization.
