ORGANIZER: Women's Health
EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2012
Run. Influence. Change the World.
Did you know that…
• Right now, 1 in 5 American children are wondering when they will get their next meal?
• Hunger hurts more than tummies—it also affects a child’s ability to learn?
• There are hungry kids in every county in America, including YOURS?
What if all you had to do to make a change in the lives of the people living in your city was RUN? This fall, that’s exactly what I'm doing.
We need to raise a quarter of a million dollars to provide 1,000,000 meals to help fight hunger in America. And, we need your help to make it happen!
Run10Feed10 wants everyone who participates to raise $100 – that’s just 10 friends donating $10 each (we kind of like the number 10, don’t we?) I think I can do better than that. I'm shooting for $200. That's double the help for hungery families.
Our overall goal? Together, let’s raise a quarter of a million and help make a change for families in your community.
All of the money raised will benefit the FEED Foundation.
