BENEFITING: The Feed Foundation

EVENT: Women's Health Run 10 Feed 10 2012

EVENT DATE: Aug 13, 2012

THE STORY:

I love running. So when I heard that Women's Health Magazine was starting a running project to donate money for the FEED foundation, I had to participate. Not only are they giving me the change to help fight hunger, but they are allowing me to choose a course in my area. How could I not join!

By donating, you will be helping contibrute to the FEED foundation to benefit hungry families.

Facts about hunger from the Stop Hunger Now organization:

  • In 2009, it was estimated that more than 1.02 billion people do not have enough to eat - more than the populations of USA, Canada and the European Union combined. That means one in nearly six people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life.

  • Out of the 1.02 billion who are hungry, more than 907 million of them live in developing countries.

  • 25,000 people (adults and children) die every day from hunger and related causes.

  • In 2007, the number of undernourished people in the world increased by 75 million, primarily due to the increase in food prices.

  • Asia and the Pacific region are home to over half the world’s population and nearly two thirds of the world’s hungry people.

  • More than 60 percent of chronically hungry people are women.

  • There are about 1 billion people in the world living on less than $1 a day. Roughly 2.6 billion people live on less than $2 per day -which is40% of the world’s population. Almost half the world – over 3 billion people - lives on less than $2.50.
