BENEFITING: COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA
EVENT DATE: Nov 23, 2014
I will be running my first half marathon and I want to raise as much money as I can for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. My minimum goal is $250 but I know we can raise so much more. The food bank supplies many programs, but one program near to my heart is the "Back Pack Prorgam". The Back Pack Program sends a back pack full of food home with kids whose main source of nutrition is likely the public school subsidized breakfast and lunch program. That means over the weekend, most of these kids are not eating unless we send food home in their back pack. It is our job as the community to support our neighbors who have less and to feed the needy, especially when those needy are children who have to rely on the goodness of others who have excess. I will be dedicating each mile I run to a kid in need. Please donate to support the food bank and watch me finish 13.1 miles for the first time!!!
