BENEFITING: WILL RUN FOR FOOD
EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
I'm running the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon on behalf of Will Run For Food, an organization that is committed to feeding the hungry in our region and throughout the world. They stock the shelves of the Sonshine Ministries food pantry in McKeesport, and donate to Katie’s Kitchen, which serves hot meals weekly to those in need in Butler, PA.
Globally, Will Run For Food supports Food for the Poor, Inc., which supplies basic needs for the people of Central America and the Caribbean. Its support has given three Haitian families a lift from poverty, including a house, food and clothing for one year, school supplies and tuition and a small business start-up. Will Run For Food also constructed a water well for a village, purchased livestock, tons of rice and beans, and planted more than 100 fruit trees in the earthquake damaged Caribbean countries.
