THE STORY:

I am not really a runner. I can run...reluctantly, and often while complaining. But when Foodshare was chosen as an offical charity for the 2014 NU Hartford Marathon, I decided to set my sights on completing my first half marathon. It won't be pretty or fast or easy, but I'm going to try because whatever money I can raise doing it supports a cause that I believe in. Will you help me? Run with me. Donate. Volunteer.  

Every dollar you raise for Foodshare means a day's worth of food for someone who is hungry.

TO DONATE:
Simply click on the green 'donate to this fundraiser' button to the right and make your contribution.  With a gift of just $30, you will feed a hungry person for an entire month!  Thank you so very much for your donation!

TO SIGN UP AS A RUNNER AND FUNDRAISE: 
Step 1 - Register for the Marathon.  Visit the NU Hartford Marathon site, and click  the green 'register now' button.  During the registration process, use the code FOODSHARE14 to get $5 off your registration fee!

Step 2 - Join the Foodshare fundraiser by clicking on the orange 'fundraise for this campaign' button to the right.  Be sure to set your fundraising goal so that you can be included in one of our exclusive Marathon Fundraising Tiers!  Just raise the following amounts (not including your registration fee) and you will get awesome swag:

        Tier 1 - 'Strawberries' - Raise $250 and you will get a Foodshare Marathon t-shirt!

        Tier 2 - 'Tangerines' - Raise over $500 and you will get a t-shirt and hot/cold gel pack (for those sore knees)!

        Tier 3 - 'Apples' - Raise more than $1,000 and not only will you get a t-shirt, but you'll also receive a super-cool Foodshare Marathon hoodie!

Step 3 - Send your fundraiser link to family, friends and co-workers asking them to donate to your team and to help Foodshare feed hungry people!

Step 4 - And finally ... Have Fun!  We'll see you on October 11!

Foodshare is the heart of greater Hartford’s fight against hunger. We bring together individuals and organizations to create effective solutions to end hunger in all 42 towns of Hartford and Tolland counties.  For more information about Foodshare - www.foodshare.org.
