BENEFITING: MOVE FOR HUNGER
ORGANIZER: MOVE FOR HUNGER
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
FACT: 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. At the same time, nearly 40% of all food produced ends up in landfills. 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. Make a donation and help support Team Move For Hunger at the Big Sur International Marathon!
The best thing about challenging yourself is that you start to realize you can do things that you once said you would never do like run a full marathon! I've had some amazing support and encouragement from friends and family. I'm so blessed to have this kind of positive energy around me.
Since I am such a believer in "what you put out is what you get back" I decided to not only run for myself but for all the men, women and children in our country who don't have food to eat. A lot of us, including myself, take food for granted but for those who don't know when there next meal is coming it is a very big deal. I chose Move For Hunger as my charity because there soul purpose is to to help people in our country to have food for themselves and there families. You don't have to look far to see the need for this type of charity in the US.
I hope that you will join me by donating to Move For Hunger and become one of those amazing people that will help bring food to empty tables throught our country. Every little bit helps!
