Atlanta Hunger Walk/Run Turns 30 In Style

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It's an annual 5K walk/"fun run" which benefits local groups fighting hunger. And this weekend, it turns the big 3-0!

The Atlanta Community Food Bank's Hunger Walk/Run began in 1984 -- and since then has raised more than $7 million for hunger relief. Last year alone, more than 15,000 people raised more than $630,000, which benefits the ACFB and other local nonprofits. This year, for the 30th anniversary on Sunday, members of the Imperial Opa Circus will be on-site at the event to entertain attendees throughout the afternoon.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken went to the ACFB for a preview of this year's event -- and wouldn't you know it, came close to running away with the circus! Check out his adventures with the Imperial Opa Circus in the video clips above!

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
