Feeding South Florida will invite people across South Florida to lace up their running shoes for the virtual 10th Annual Outrun Hunger 5K, the organization’s annual race to raise awareness for and end hunger and food insecurity, on Saturday, September 26, from 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Originally scheduled for March 21, the annual race was rescheduled due to COVID-19 closures.
Registration costs $30 for the general public and $20 for students (with student I.D. or proof of enrollment). Participants can run or walk their favorite five-kilometer route on September 26, take photos, and tag #FeedingSouthFlorida for the chance to be featured on Feeding South Florida’s social media channels. All participants will receive an event t-shirt and medal at a drive-thru packet pick-up or via mail.
The 10th Annual Feeding South Florida Outrun Hunger 5K helps the organization make a difference in the lives of the 1.4 million residents in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties experiencing food insecurity. The need for food assistance in these counties more than doubled during the COVID-19 pandemic. For every $1 donated, Feeding South Florida can provide nine meals to people in need.
Event sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Michele Fernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 518-1818, ext. 1863 to learn more.
