Hunger is not a stereotype.
I'm doing this 5K because I believe in what the Cleveland Foodbank does and I know the true value of the life-saving work they do. I have been in that place before where there is no money for food and it's not easy and it's also a place of humility. This is my way of giving back.
I would love it if you would support me in this as we work to raise money for the Cleveland Foodbank!
Why Race to a Million?
In the United States, one in four children don’t know where their next meal is coming from. We have a company goal to positively impact a million lives per year. Last year, Human Arc’s Race to a Million raised $16,500 for the hungry and food-insecure of Northeast Ohio. This year, we are going to race past that with a goal of $25,000 for the Cleveland Foodbank, raising enough money to provide 100,000 meals to those in need.
Who We Are
Human Arc works with hospitals and health plans across the country to assist their members and patients with government funded assistance and quality-of-life improvements. The Human Arc Family Foundation believes in “making a difference, one life at a time.” Our mission is to provide compassionate and caring service to individuals in the communities we serve through volunteerism, education and charitable giving.
The Cleveland Foodbank has a fantastic history in our community of being “the vital link between food and hunger” and we are proud to support them! The Foodbank’s 10,000 volunteers distribute over 30 million pounds of food annually through over 600 hunger programs.
