Hungry Hustle? Ugly Sweater? Food Drive?
Every year, hunger affects 48 million Americans including more than 15 million children. Childhood hunger is a serious issue that Tan’s Treats believes can be solved. We are doing everything we can to fight hunger but we can’t do it alone. To read more about childhod hunger facts click here.
In this holiday spirited 5k Fun Run we are going to “Hustle” in an effort to keep children from being “Hungry”. And we’re going to do it sporting our Ugliest Sweaters, because that’s what you do in December, right?
Food Drive: For those that don’t want to run, don’t have the time to enjoy the fun run with us or just want to donate to help feed hungry kids, Confluence Park will also be a food drive drop off location from 8:00am to 4:00pm the day of the 5k event (Click here for a list of suggested foods to donate).
Event Details: The festivities begin at 9:30am, with the 5k starting at 10:30am.
Each of the 5 kilometers will be marked with some fun activities including tinsel, Christmas trees, snowballs, candy canes, a selfie with Santa (the real one!) and much more!
So find your ugliest sweater, put your running shoes on and be prepared for a fun run filled with Christmas joy (and a whole lot of happy, non-hungry kids)!
Following the 5k there will be hot chocolate and food trucks to replenish your energy! 100% of the proceeds from this event will be used to provide food to children in need of food.
- Each Individual applicant will receive a goodie bag, t-shirt, and a selfie with Good Ol’ St Nick.
- Each Family will receive a goodie bag, 3 t-shirts, and a selfie with Good Ol’ St Nick! You can order as many additional family t-shirts for $10 each.
More Information about Tan’s Treats
Tan’s Treats is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the children in our community. Each year thousands of children in the United States get out of school for the weekend and return home to a less than adequate supply of food. Their needs during the week are being met with school breakfast and lunch but they are left to go hungry over the weekend. As an organization we coordinate food efforts together with their schools to get them guaranteed weekend meals. Science has proven children who are hungry have a much harder time performing well in school and we believe every student deserves a fair chance at succeeding and that no child should go hungry.
