"Did you know that…
- Right now, 1 in 5 American children are wondering when they will get their next meal?
- Hunger hurts more than tummies—it also affects a child’s ability to learn?
- There are hungry kids in every county in America, including YOURS?
What if all you had to do to make a change in the lives of the people living in your city was RUN? This fall, that’s exactly what we’re asking you to do."

My name is Ashley Abbas. I always try to help out when I can and when I read the above statement I saw an AMAZING opportunity to help out the children in my area of South Dakota.
I want to raise $100 to help feed hungry children in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I'm going to run a 10K on September 1st, 2012. By doing this, Womens Health and The FEED Foundation will feed 10 children in Sioux Falls.
I am not asking anyone to donate if they don't want to; I just want people to know that they have the chance to help out in thier own way. If you would like to run, you can feed 10 more children in your area by doing so, but if you can't run, even a small donation will make a big difference. The choice is yours.
I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this and I am Extremely Grateful for all the support.
Thank You and God Bless.
All of the money raised will benefit the FEED Foundation.
