Right now, over 50 million Americans are food insecure, meaning they don’t know from where their next meal is coming. The reality is that there is enough food in the world for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life. The other reality is that we can do something about it. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN!
Women’s Health’s wildly popular race and fundraising event, RUN10 FEED10, is coming back to New York City on Sunday, September 22, 2013. The race starts at 7 AM and will take place at Pier 84 at Hudson River Park along the Westside Highway.
This fall, Women’s Health magazine and FEED will host the second RUN10 FEED10 in New York City. The concept is simple: run a 10K with us and provide 10 meals for those struggling with hunger in New York. Last year, RUN10 FEED10 raised 1 million meals nationwide and we’re setting the bar even higher for 2013.
Timed 10k races will also take place in Chicago and San Francisco. People living in Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle can participate in one of Women’s Health’s “Fun Runs” and if runners do not live in one of our host cities, they can still participate by signing up to run their own 10K. The money from the registration and fundraising efforts will go to their nearest metropolitan area food bank. Download the official, free RUN10FEED10 app to plot your training course.
The day will include:
- An unforgettable experience running a 10K for those in need
- Pre-and post-race activities including guided stretches and yoga with a special guest trainer
- Tons of freebies, experiences and giveaways from FEED, Dove, Degree, Lipton Tea, Simple, Kellogg Nourish, OPI, Vaseline Birkenstock, Sketchers, Cigna, Ford Fiesta and more.
