BENEFITING: Maryland Food Bank

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE 2014

Joe Rink

THE STORY:

My goal is simple: make a difference to reduce hunger in Maryland.  I am proud to partner with the Maryland Food Bank to do just that!  I became acquainted with the Maryland Food Bank during volunteer work through my employer, McCormick & Co., Inc.  Both organizations have a long history together.  I am priviledged and thankful to announce that I will be competing in the Ironman Maryland on September 20, 2014.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with an Ironman, it's a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and finishes with a marathon.  It is typically regarded as the most challenging endurance event in the world.  The Ironman should be an exciting experience and has required months of preparation and training.  With such a big commitment ahead of me, I have decided to register with the Ironman Foundation, and raise money as I train for the Maryland Food Bank.

Please help my friends at the Maryland Food Bank.  They do amazing work there.  The Maryland Food Bank is a nonprofit hunger-relief organization, leading the movement to end hunger throughout Maryland. For 35 years the Maryland Food Bank has partnered with communities across the state to distribute food to individuals and families in need. Through carefully crafted programs, the food bank aims to meet the immediate needs of Marylanders while simultaneously working to find long term ways to reduce hunger statewide.  The Maryland Food Bank's Mission is to lead the movement and nurture the belief that together we can improve the lives of Marylanders by ending hunger.

The Ironman Foundation is providing me with the platform to raise funds for The Maryland Food Bank.  In doing so, I am making my journey a race for a cause.  I really need your support to raise money for this terrific organization.

Please partner with me by making a donation on my secure personal fundraising webpage.  Simply click the red "Donate to this Fundraiser" link in the top right hand corner.

Thanks for your support!

Sincerely,

Joe Rink

PS:  Based on median income, Maryland is the wealthiest state in the country. Why, then, is hunger such a pervasive problem in our communities? The Maryland Food Bank has struggled to fight hunger since its beginning—in 1979. Over the last seven years, we have more than tripled our food distribution; in FY13 setting new records, with the distribution of 28.8 million meals to families in need. Unfortunately, increases in efficiency and distribution have been shadowed by increases in need.
