THE STORY:

Hi Friends & Family,

I'm excited to announce that I've signed up for my 4th FULL MARATHON. I'm running for an exceptionally great cause... hunger relief in the U.S.

If you've never had to visit a food bank to pick up your groceries, you have been blessed. Thousands upon thousands of families across the U.S. rely on food banks for their basic food staples. Sadly the majority of them have young children. We don't have to go very far in the world to find hungry and malnurished children.

FACT: 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. I know this to be true because I was one of them when I was a child.

FACT: Nearly 40% of all food produced ends up in landfills.

Please read below about "MOVE FOR HUNGER" and the work they do to get much needed support to food banks.

Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies across North America to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 650 movers in 50 states and their network has collected over 6 million pounds of food! Your support will directly impact the number of people we are able to feed in the years ahead. 96% of every dollar donated goes directly towards our hunger relief and food waste reduction programs. Hunger is a year-round problem that requires a year-round solution. Please make a donation and help support Team Move For Hunger at the Big Sur International Marathon!

A marathon is 26.2 miles...won't you donate $1 for each mile I run, or any amount that is put on your heart to donate. My fundraising goal is $1,000 and every dollar counts!

Your donation is tax deductible and will earn you CrowdRise Impact Points which are a reflection of how you give back and are redeemable for pretty good stuff!

Thank you so much for your support. If you are not able to donate, you can root for me and encourage me as I take on this challenge/goal and hope to improve my personal record of 5 hours and 29 minutes.

I'll be updating this page frequently, please be sure to visit again soon!

love & peace,

Karen Lomeli
