Will You Run With Me?

~ RUN 10 FEED10 2016
I'm running next Sunday, September 18th, and I hope you will consider doing the same, if not in NYC maybe you can at a later time in a participating city. I LOVE this race for many reasons, which I'll share, but the most important reason why is because just by signing-up you are already FEEDING 10 people!! There is no pressure of fundraising and reaching a certain limit to participate, you can train on your own and if you decide to walk the race you can do so, and getting up early to run along the West Side Highway while taking in the beautiful view is invigorating. I hope you will consider it, as I am hooked and will be doing this for many years to come.
Here is the information and links you need to know:
WHO: Join Women’s Health Magazine, FEED, Lauren Bush Lauren, GMA’s Ginger Zee and thousands of men and women runners in the fight against hunger.
What: This fall, Women’s Health magazine is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its signature RUN 10 FEED 10 event with a mission! On September 18 in New York City, thousands of participants will run down the West Side Highway for the timed 10K or 5K race. Women’s Health and FEED, the organization founded by philanthropist and social entrepreneur Lauren Bush Lauren, partner for this race series to motivate consumers nationwide to help fight domestic hunger. The concept is simple: run a 10k, feed 10 people. We have raised 4.5 million meals since starting this initiative in 2012 and have the goal of breaking 5 million in 2016. ABC’s Good Morning America Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee will be the special guest host and will also be running the race.
Proceeds from registration and fundraising efforts will be donated to the nearest NYC metropolitan area shelters and food banks. Included in the registration fee is a 2016 limited-edition FEED bag.
Race day will include:
