5k run/walk to support and raise awareness for Giving the Basics.  Giving the Basics efficiently tracks the need for our products and distributes them to more than 140 local organizations and 351 schools, making the basics accessible to 250,000 people monthly.  In 2019, Giving the Basics distributed over 6,500,000 personal hygiene products to those in need.

Our products immediately impact low-income families with small children, students, battered women, veterans, seniors, former prisoners and the mentally ill. Our products help children attend school feeling fresh so they feel comfortable in the learning environment and they assure adults have the dignity they need so they can gain employment
