“Heart of Hope” Run for Hunger is set to take place September 13, 2014 @8:00 am. It was established to help combat the lack of food in the lives of children who come specifically from Carolina Beach Elementary School.
Currently there are 449 children who are registered there. 136 children are on free lunches with 27 on a reduced lunch program. This year a summer gap occurred. We went to work and enacted “Donation Stations” whereby others can give snacks/drinks directly to these stations. They are then picked up and delivered to children helping us wage war on hunger.
Sponsorships are garnered to help produce the run which enable us to position ourselves, in such a way, that we are able to give directly into hands of those responsible without any overhead, red tape or delay. The situation is dire and the need is certain.
Won’t you rise up and be a part of “Heart of Hope” Run for Hunger 2014? Let us (together) help those who do not ask to be born into poverty in order that they, too, can have the hope they will need (in their hearts) to rise up and out of their circumstances.
How can you help? By volunteering, helping with the race day event, or by “getting the word out” to anyone you know who can run, walk, roll or relay for such a worthy cause. And, lastly (but not least!) there is a $100.00 cash prize for the first place winner! A win, win situation!
100% of any monies raised (from the “Heart of Hope” Run) go to provide the basics of life…food.
See you on race day!
