Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual 5K Hummelstown Hunger Run is scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2016. This event will feature a chip timed race, as well as a family and pet-friendly walk along the beautiful streets of Hummelstown – all while supporting a great cause! Besides runners and walkers, we need volunteers and sponsors to make this a successful event. Help fill someone else’s stomach – it’ll warm your heart.
To register and/or volunteer, please visit the Narthex display or online at http://htownhungerrun wix.com/hummelstown5K.
All registrants receive a gift bag that includes a race t-shirt, water bottle, fruit, etc. Race t-shirts are available for $10 for children 12 and under participating with a registrant. Order forms are located at the Narthex display. Deadline for t-shirt orders is April 29th . Registrants and volunteers who bring a nonperishable food item for our collection bin will be entered into a drawing for one of the many gift certificates provided by local sponsors. Last year are sponsors provided over 30 gift certificates.
Our inaugural event was a huge success. Thanks to the 151 participants, 43 amazing volunteers and the generous support of 51 local businesses and many personal donors we raised and contributed over $7,500 to the Hummelstown Food Pantry. The Hummelstown Food Pantry currently serves 116 families. The Pantry’s annual expenses range between $15,000 and $20,000. We are asking your support to help us fulfill our goal of meeting the Pantry’s yearly financial obligation.
