This year I decided to fundraise for those hungry in our city. At times we (or shall I say I) can indulge on food with gourmet food trucks (Tasty Tuesday @ Post Oak Central) or delicious brunch buffets such as Hugo's, or we enjoy the best of Houston's organic produce and artisan bread and cheese at the local farmers markets. It makes it hard to remember that there are so many adults and children around us going hungry. Donating to this page or joining the RUN 10 FEED 10 run is just another way of many to help this cause. I hope many of you took advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks last month, I love that fundraiser! Find more details below.
Promotion: Donate or raise at least $20 from 9/3 at 9am ET to 9/9 at 11:59pm ET and you'll be entered for a chance to Win a FEED Love Bag and a Moving Comfort FineForm Sports Bra. See below for rules.
Right now, 49 million Americans are going hungry—they don't know when they will get their next meal. The reality is there IS enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life.
Hunger is the world’s most solvable problem.
It's something we can do something about. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN!
This fall, Women’s Health will once again host our run with a mission. Run a 10K with us, and you will instantly provide 10 meals for those going hungry in your local and surrounding communities. You can join us by racing in New York City, Chicago or San Francisco, or you can join us at Fun Runs nationwide. If you don't live in one of our host cities - you can still participate! Sign up to run your own 10K. The money from your registration and fundraising efforts will go to those metropolitan areas nearest to you.
Visit RUN10FEED10.COM to register to run.
*Exact cost per meal varies by city. This represents the estimated number of meals your participation provides based upon the average cost per meal through a national network of food banks.
