HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Thousands of people participated in the Foodshare Walk Against Hunger in Hartford on Sunday, despite the rain.

This year, walkers were challenged to raise more than $600,000 to benefit residents in the greater Hartford area.

Every dollar provides relief for those struggling to put food on the table.

The walk began at 2 p.m. at Liam McGee Park.

Channel 3's Kim Lucey was the emcee at the event.
