Amos Desjardins

THE STORY:

Amos Desjardins will run 500 miles in VA in just 5 days bringing awareness to hunger in Virginia and raise money for the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.

Beginning on Saturday August 30th Amos Desjardins, in partnership with the Federation of Virginia Food Banks (http://vafoodbanks.org/), will be embarking upon an amazing 500-mile journey through Virginia to help raise money and awareness to fight hunger and food deserts within Virginia. Over this journey Amos will take 1,000,000 steps - each step representing an individual in Virginia currently struggling with knowing where their next meal will come from.

Amos will begin the record setting 500-mile journey in his hometown of Alexandria, Virginia and see him travel west to Winchester, south and east through Harrisburg, Charlottesville and Richmond, before heading north to finish in Old Town Alexandria. Along the way Amos will benefit from water/aid stops at several local running stores - where food donations will be collected by the support team - providing him with an opportunity to hydrate, refuel, and connect with locals who are interested in running with him.
