Feeding South Florida™ is inspiring area residents to walk/run miles for meals to end hunger and register for its 3rd Annual March for Hunger 5K Walk/Run, taking place on Sunday, March 3. The 5K will kick off at Charnow Park, and the community event will happen along the acclaimed Hollywood Boardwalk and beach area in Hollywood, Fla.
Participants can simply walk or run to make a big difference in the effort to end hunger for nearly 1 million residents of Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties who are food insecure. For every dollar raised, Feeding South Florida can provide six meals. Feeding South Florida asks (but does not require) that each participant try to raise $100 (equaling 600 meals). Awards will go to the top three in each age group: Top Three Overall Winners, Both Male and Female, Top Three Fundraising Teams, Top Three Fundraising Individuals.
Registration for the event is $25 (equaling 150 meals) in advance and $35 (equaling 210 meals) the day of the race. To register online, visit www.active.com/running/hollywood-fl/march-for-hunger-2013
