BENEFITING: COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA
ORGANIZER: Community Food Bank of Eastern OK
If you donate $10, you can pick a song - any song in the world (no matter how ridiculous it might be...) - and I will listen to it while I run the half-marathon. List the title and artist in the comment box when you donate and I'll add it to my playlist
The Food Bank distributes food to 450 Partner Programs throughout eastern Oklahoma, which include organizations such as Youth Services of Tulsa, DVIS, Emergency Infant Services, Salvation Army, Iron Gate, Day Center for the Homeless and many more. By supporting the Food Bank's mission, you're supporting a number of local Tulsa area charities!
For every dollar donated to my cause, the Food Bank can distribute 4 meals; however, the marathon is matching your donation, which means for every dollar raised, you'll be providing 8 meals to feed the hungry in our community!
"Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope" is what inspired me to take part in the Route 66 Marathon weekend in November. This is my 5th half-marathon, but this is my first time to be able to run in support of an amazing cause and will bring so much joy and I cross that finish line! Thanks for your support!
