Run 2 Feed Fun Run/Walk 5K

May 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Owego Rotary is proud to host the Run 2 Feed Fun Run/Walk 5K to benefit the Tioga County Anti-hunger Task Force which addresses Child Hunger in Tioga County on May 21, 2017 beginning at noon in Hickories Park, Owego.

Child Hunger affects many children and families in our community. 21% of Tioga County students suffer from food insecurity, which means they have limited access to adequate food. 4,000 children in Tioga County receive free or reduced meal plans at schools, but when children are not at school, such as in the summer months, their access to regular and nutritious meals is often uncertain. The Anti-Hunger Task Force addresses this gap in food availability for children by offering programs to reach kids in need, such as the Summer Food Service Program where they hand out backpacks with food at sites throughout the county. They also are inspiring a conversation among organizations and residents about the reality of Child Hunger in our community and the urgency of need. The Run 2 Feed 5K Run/Walk will address both of these initiatives by
raising money and awareness.

Run 2 Feed will be a fun community event as well as a fundraiser! Participants will enjoy a Dog Parade, a Kids’ Run, the 5K, food and beverages (free food and water will be provided to race participants), a DJ and more!
