Description

Join us for the 9th annual Outrun Hunger! Outrun Hunger is a 5k and 1 mile event for charity partnering with two food pantries, Hospitality House of Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center of Waterford, to help feed Lakes Region families during the holiday season. Best of all, 100% of the contributions, (excluding online transaction fees), goes back to our community for those in need. According to our partner organizations, they served 1,551 families (up 390 from last year) and 3,635 individuals (up 699 from last year) in November and December, the “demand” often overwhelms the “supply.” Come join us to Outrun Hunger this holiday season!
