This April will mark the 5th year in a row that I will be headed down to Long Branch for the marathon & half marathon weekend. With 3 Long Branch Halfs and one NJ Marathon under my belt, I decided that I wanted to do something different in preparation for this year's half marathon race. I decided to join Team Move For Hunger and raise awareness and money for this great cause.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies across North America to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks.
It is a fact that 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. 17 million children will go to bed hungry tonight. Over 850,000 people in New Jersey receive food assistance each month.
To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 600 movers in 48 states and has collected over 4 million pounds of food! Your support through a donation no matter how big or small will directly impact the number of people Move For Hunger will be able to feed in the years ahead. Hunger is a year-round problem that requires a year-round solution.
Please consider making a donation and help support Team Move For Hunger at the New Jersey Marathon & 1/2 Marathon!
