November 14 - November 22 is National Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week. In hopes of bringing more attention to the hunger and homeless crisis, 10 volunteers from the Jim White Fitness Foundation, based out of Virginia Beach Virginia, will be running alongside 2 homeless individuals from the beach to the Nation's Capital. The 240-mile run will be a fundraiser for the JWFF and a public demonstration of how passionate these volunteers are about this project. Throughout the year, these same volunteers help educate groups of homeless and in-need individuals, "Athletes", through the Jim White Fitness Foundation's LIFT Program. LIFT stands for Lifting spirits, Improving Bodies, Feeding souls and Transforming lives. During their time with the Athletes, volunteers teach weekly fitness sessions, nutrition education, healthy cooking classes, grocery store tours, and more. This Program has allowed the JWFF to change hundreds of lives and with your help we can impact hundreds more.
