BENEFITING: MOVE FOR HUNGER
ORGANIZER: MOVE FOR HUNGER
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Deciding to run the LA Marathon was not easy as I was overwhelmed by the distance and unsure of my capabilities. With this being my first marathon, I am excited to step up to the challenge of enduring 26.2 beautiful miles, and am grateful to have the opportunity to fundraise and support a great organization along the way! Move for Hunger is an impressive nonprofit that took a simple concept and has seen the great impact that their decision to address a community issue has had on addressing hunger in this country.
I am extremely thankful for all of the blessings in my life and for the generosity of my friends and family who continue to support me.
Below is a quick fact about hunger in America - please take a read and if you're interested or moved to do so, please donate to their cause :)
FACT: 1 in 6 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 unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 650 movers in 50 states and their network has collected over 7 million pounds of food! Your support will directly impact the number of people we are able to feed in the years ahead. 96% of every dollar donated goes directly towards our hunger relief and food waste reduction programs. Hunger is a year-round problem that requires a year-round solution.
