Help me turn MILES into MEALS!
Hi, my name is Susan, and I have been running since I was eight years old. I've always loved the race and loved that most races supported worthy causes. This year, I have decided to personally run to support Move for Hunger!
I am grateful for any and all support from my family and friends and kind strangers who would like to support me and Move for Hunger either financially or through your prayers.
FACT: 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. At the same time, nearly 40% of all food produced ends up in landfills. Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies across North America to pick up the unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks.
Move For Hunger is a national nonprofit organization that has found a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. By mobilizing leaders in the moving, relocation, and multi-family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents witht he opportunity to donate their food when they moved. Since 2009, Move For Hunger has collected 15 million pounds of food, and has helped to feed Your support will directly impact the number of people we are able to feed in the years ahead. 95% of every donation goes directly towards our hunger relief and food waste reduction programs.
Hunger is a year-round problem that requires a year-round solution. Make a donation and help support Team Move For Hunger at the the Grandma's Marathon & Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon weekend.
More about me:
I mentioned above that I have been running since I was eight years old. I used to train and race along side my dad as I was growing up. Running has always been a passion of mine along with serving others. Over the past two years, I've had to take a break from running, and now I am back at it. I'm still reconditioning my muscles to go the distance, but I am excited to run each mile to help fight hunger in our local communities.
I will be posting updates along the way as I train and prepare for the half marathon this summer. Thank you all again!
