THE STORY:

Hey friends and family.  As many of you already know, I'm running the NYC Marathon later this year.  This is my first marathon ever and I felt that I should run for a cause.  So this year, I will be running to raise money for "Run For Food", a great organization that  a friend of mine created to bring basic nutritional meals to starving people in developing countries (click on the arrows to the left to see a video on Run for Food).  I'll keep you posted on my progress and thank you for any support you can provide to Run for Food.

- James

 

Run for Food

Over 1 billion people in the world suffer from chronic hunger and/or hunger-related illnesses. Sadly, on average, one child under five dies every 5 seconds as a result of hunger or poor nutrition. This is 6 million children per year. Most, if not all of these deaths, are in developing nations. While there is enough food produced each year to feed the world and eliminate these problems, it is not efficiently distributed where it is most needed.

Run For Food International is designed to partner with organizations that are producing measurable results in particular areas of need, e.g., agriculture, feeding facilities, food distribution, livestock, education or economics.

Running and walking are activities that millions of people participate in all around the world. These marathons, half marathons, 10K, 8K or 5K races and fun runs are all opportunities for runners with a desire to end world hunger to partner with Run For Food International to raise resources that will directly benefit starving people.
 

I am racing to find a solution that will defeat hunger in our lifetime. Running for Food is a Win, Win, Win proposition. First, it saves lives by providing much needed food and nourishment for starving and malnourished people around the world. Second, it provides an opportunity for runners who participate to contribute to the health and welfare of those who are hungry, while at the same time burning calories and learning the importance of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Finally, it gives all participants in any of our programs a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction for the contribution they made to this cause whether it is monetary or physical.
