Description

Event Description: Too many seniors are going hungry in the state of Georgia. One in every six senior in Georgia is struggling with hunger. Everyday thousands of Gwinnett Seniors are forced to make difficult decisions, whether to pay for prescriptions medicine or nutritious food. Food insecurity among seniors often occurs due to lack of transportation, the expense of nutritious foods and functional limitation.  Each month Mending The Gap Inc. delivers 2000lbs. of food to the low-income seniors in Gwinnett. All proceeds from this Run will help to continue providing basic needs to support our Seniors in need.

                    This Race is Hosted by Mending The Gap Inc.
