Join this 5k of historic proportions while runners across the country band together to help feed Americas in need. We are looking to raise a minimum of $250,000 for Feeding America while having over 120,000 runners participate which will be the biggest run in history. each $1 raised translates into 10 meals, $500,000 = 5 million meals. No entry fee just donate and run!
Please share to everyone runners and non-runners we need to get the word out, 100% of the donations will go directly to Feeding America which is in dire need due millions of people losing their jobs and needing food. Demand at many food banks is up 50%.
Runners will leave from where ever they, home, etc, at 9am Eastern Time and run 3.1 miles recording their own time and logging their time on the registration site. Best to choose a route away from traffic and cross walks if possible, even running around the block for 3.1 miles is perfect, it's your choice. Winners by category will submit proof of their time via strava, pacer, garmin or other apps. All must follow the CDC guideline and local government restrictions for exercising outside. Donations accepted through Facebook, RunSignup and directly on the Feeding America website.
We are doing this for goodwill to help feed those in need, for fun, for community, for exercise and just to get out of the house, runners in first three places by category will be awarded digital certificates and mailed certificates, all finishers will receive digital certificates.
