THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family!

Eric, my husband, was selected to run in the Gary Bjorklund Half Marathon on June 17, 2017. I was not selected (probably because I have run this half marathon twice:) but I would like to run and cheer on my husband on his very first half marathon experience!  I was given an opportunity to raise money for a charity and in doing so, I will be able to get into this very memorable amazing race. I chose Move For Hunger because everyone should be able to eat. We should never be throwing food away while others literally do not have food to eat that day. My children go to school with kids who rely on school lunch as their only meal for that day! How can that be! So, please help me raise $500 minimum to enter the race but also help me raise more than that so children and adults around us can have a good warm and nutritious meal.

Bless you, Lacie Metso

 

FACT: Over 568,000 Minnesota residents are food insecure,  while 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 7 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 Grandma's Marathon & Garry Bjorkland Half Marathon!
