Walk for Hunger raises $3.1m, but falls short of goal

Sponsor hoped to exceed 2012 total of $3.6m

About halfway through last year’s Walk for Hunger, the annual fund-raiser for Project Bread, three Lexington High School sophomores made a decision: If they raised $3,500 for the 2013 walk, they would dress as Disney princesses.

The teens raised $4,036 — part of the projected $3.1 million raised by about 30,000 walkers in the 45th annual benefit for the antihunger organization.
