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.
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!
