CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- The Harry Chapin Memorial Run Against Hunger will take place on Sunday in Croton-on-Hudson.

The event will begin about 10:15 a.m. on Old Post Road South in front of the high school.

There will be walkers and runners traveling throughout the village. To ensure the safety of the participants and the public, there will be intermittent lane and street closures throughout the day on the following streets:

Old Post Road South

Cedar Lane

Nordica Drive

Cleveland Drive

Jacoby Street

Gerstein Street

Wood Road

Route 129

Batten Road

If you have any questions or need additional information, call the Croton Police Department at 914-271-5177.

The memorial run supports groups that fight hunger, including the Croton Caring Committee, Caring for the Homeless of Peekskill, Food Bank for Westchester, Hillside Food Outreach in Pleasantville, and WhyHunger (which was co-founded by Harry Chapin).

Chapin, who died in 1981, was a folk singer in the 1970s who co-founded the organization World Hunger Year in 1975 and who donated an estimated one-third of his paid concerts to charitable causes, especially ones that fought hunger.
