EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

THE STORY:

 

Running one marathon, something society sees as a great achievement, pales in comparison to the marathons so many hungry parents must run every day, 365 days a year, to try to keep their families' tummies full. Food is a basic necessity, yet 1 out of 4 children in Maine do not have enough food to eat. The next generation is our greatest resource, a resource that needs not just love and attention, but also enough in their stomach to grow, learn, thrive and bloom.

There are a number of wonderful programs that exist to help feed hungry children in Maine throughout the school year. But when the school year is over and summer is upon us, the problem does not go away.

Last year, Healthy Lincoln County provided 12,500 healthy meals through breakfasts and lunches to more than 550 children.

The Summer Food Service Program, http://www.healthylincolncounty.org/meals.html (A subsidiary of the company Medical Care Development), with support from USDA, gives Lincoln County an opportunity to improve a child's physical and social development while providing nutritious meal. I am running the Boston marathon on April 17. Please donate to this amazing program and help participate in reducing child hunger in Maine. All proceeds will go directly to Healthy Lincoln Country, a project of Medical Care Development Inc. No one should go hungry. Ever. 

As a Frenchman living in Maine running the Boston marathon is a great honor. It will be an even greater one to do my part to contribute in the fight against food insecurity in my wonderful adopted state.

Thank you very much for your attention to this critical issue, and for your compassionate help.

Merci.
