As a Women's Health Action Hero for the San Francisco Run 10 Feed 10 Event, I invite you to join me in fighting hunger. You can join the event, create your own fundraiser, or donate to my campaign. Every single dollar matters, and the funds you raise stay local!
Your Run 10 Feed 10 registration fee will feed 10 meals locally (even if you use discount code WHBAIN to save $5!) and cover some costs of the event. An additional $40 can feed a family for a month via FEED.
Right now, 49 million Americans are going hungry—they don't know when they will get their next meal--and many of them are children. Childhood hunger affects not just growing young bodies but also the ability to concentrate and learn in school. The reality is there IS enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life.
Hunger is the world’s most solvable problem.
It's something we can do something about. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN! (Again, if you don't want to run, feel free to just donate!!)
This fall, Women’s Health will once again host our run with a mission. Run a 10K with us, and 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 where you can join me in running across the Golden Gate Bridge. Or join a fun run in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Boston, Denver, and Houston.
If you don't live in one of the host cities, time to schedule a vacation! Just kidding, you can still participate by signing up to run your own 10K. The money from your registration and fundraising efforts will go to those metropolitan areas nearest to you.
Visit RUN10FEED10.COM to register to run.
*Exact cost per meal varies by city. This represents the estimated number of meals your participation provides based upon the average cost per meal through a national network of food banks.
