This April my colleague Jay Pillitteri chose an organization he feels strongly about (and I can understand why) called WhyHunger, and so naturally I will be running this month's half marathon in support of this cause.
WhyHunger is a leader in building the movement to end hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious, affordable food and by supporting grassroots solutions that inspire self-reliance and community empowerment. Their goals are centered around three initiatives:
-Movement Building – Build and strengthen grassroots-led movements for food justice and food sovereignty worldwide.
-Social Justice – Work for social justice by addressing the root causes of hunger and the deep inequities of poverty at the intersection of economic inequality, racism, health and the environment.
-Human Rights – Work to protect and advance the right to nutritious food for all.
Please support this cause and make a small donation so that I keep running through 2018!
