Hi, my name is Claire and Luisa will be my teammate. We are running the Run10Feed10 10k in Miami on September 29th with Women's Health. Automatically by entering, we each have provided 10 meals for those in our local and surrounding neighborhoods. That is not enough to address this problem though. It is one that is very near and dear to my heart, as I have seen true hunger firsthand. Even if you have not, you know how important it is. Hunger kills more than AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis combined. When looking for ways to help those struggling with the larger issue of poverty, we tend to address issues such as education, employment, and health when the issue that is the root of most of these is hunger and starvation. "When people are hungry and malnourished, they cannot learn, work, or care for their families." We often times forget how truly blessed each and every one of us are to live in this country and be provided with the opportunities and care that we have, and we take that for granted. Sometimes we need to take a step back, appreciate what we have, and lend a helping hand to those less fortunate.
Here is the problem:
By competing in this race and fundraising for the cause of it beforehand, we just wish to make a small impact on this worldwide problem. So, help us to help the hungry. Thank you so much for your time and consideration, we appreciate ANY form of support.
