So, I've wanted to do this run for a while... Last year the date was some date I had plans, the year before I was pregnant, blah, blah,blah... So, this year I am running!
In honor of my 40th birthday, I set a goal to raise $4,400 that (if my math is right) will be equivalent to 40,000 meals - give or take.
Can you help me out? $100=909 meals, $50 = 454 meals. Let's make this run really count!
Official blurb below
RUN 10 FEED 10 started in 2012 with the hope of raising money and awareness for the dire hunger problem in America. The concept was a simple one. RUN a 10K and FEED 10 hungry people in your hometown. Since we started, you’ve helped us to raise enough money to provide 3.75 million meals to Americans in need. Now, going into our fourth year, we need your help once again to reach our goal of providing 5 million meals.
The reality is, hunger is the world's most solvable problem. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. Fundraise or donate here and join our run with a mission. By running a 10K with us, 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 event cities - you can still participate! Sign up to run your own 10K. The money from your event registration and fundraising efforts will go to those metropolitan areas nearest to you. Visit RUN10FEED10.COM to register to run.
