The first ever Walk for Rice raised $2,500 with 45 walkers. Twenty two years later, we expect more than 1,000 walkers to attend the 22nd Annual Walk for Rice, on Saturday, June 30th, 2012 hosted by Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS). Join us as we strive toward our goal of raising $200,000 to help bring an end to the fight against hunger.
