Run to Feed the Hungry (5k walk/run, 10k race)

  • CSUS J Street Sacramento, CA United States (map)

This month, Run to Feed the Hungry will attract over 27,000 participants to race (5k walk/run or 10k) & raise money for the Sacramento Food Bank.  

Now more than ever this organization needs our help. With this economy impacting more & more families: 
1) Less donations have been coming in and... 
2) Less jobs/more layoffs mean more families than ever are in need and are coming to the Sacramento Food Bank for support. 

This is a sad equation. With fewer donations coming in, the money raised from this race has a TREMENDOUS impact on the Sacramento Food Bank's ability to serve these families in our community.  


(♥) Proceeds from your team race fee benefit Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services



Let's get together to have fun as a team running, skipping, and hopping & gobbling like it's our business! Good times will be had for sure! 

This 18th annual event is held on Thanksgiving Morning, November 24th.
