BENEFITING: Feeding America
EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2013
I will be running a 10K on 9/22/13 to help provide meals for at least 10 people and attempting to raise additional funds to feed many more. My goal is to raise $500.
Please help me to raise funds for this cause by making a donation today.
Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
Through the assistance of local and national food assistance programs, Feeding America is able to provide nutritious, fresh foods to Americans struggling with hunger; safe and nurturing places for children to have a meal; emergency assistance for disaster victims; as well as a chance at self-sufficiency for adults trying to break the cycle of poverty and hunger.
Thank you for helping to fight hunger and feed America.
Here is some additional information to keep in mind...
Nutrition can substantially influence brain structure and function. It provides the building blocks for the brain to create and maintain connections that are critical for cognition and academic performance. This process is thought to begin during gestation, because supplementing undernourished pregnant mothers, lactating mothers, and children with both energy and protein during the first few years of development has shown to have a profound, positive impact on measures of language, memory and perception. (Burkhalter, 2011)
