Hitting the pavement can be a great form of exercise, as well as an inspired way to give to a most worthy charity. Sunday, Sep. 22 ABC’s Good Morning America featured “Run Ten Feed Ten” as runners took to the streets in America, running for charity. Laura Frerer-Schmidt, editor of Women’s Health Magazine told ABC News’ Ginger Zee from one race site at Hudson River Park in New York, “If you run this 10K with Women’s Health, and Feed and Unilever, you feed 10 people in your hometown. And, we’re kicking off in New York today, and it rolls out across the country. So, go on run10feed10.com and sign up.”
Women’s Health Magazine is hosting the event, partnering with FEED USA — a project created by Lauren Bush Lauren — and Unilever — producers of products for nutrition and hygiene in the U.S. and globally — to address the hunger problem in America and around the globe. The event feeds communities with the help of everyday people running to give food to 10 people in their own community. Frerer-Schmidt explains, “Each city has these big produced races in major cities across the nation. But, if you go on ... Run Ten Feed Ten, you can log your race in any town, in any city, across the country and feed 10 people in your community.” In addition to the three hosting partners, a long list of sponsors generously lend their names and aid in presenting this event — some well-known and used daily in American homes, others not so familiar but just as generous in their gift to help feed America and the hungry, world-wide.
Running is a great way to do something good for yourself, while feeding the hungry in America. With 50 million Americans in need of food, “Run Ten Feed Ten” makes your run count. Like Feed America created by Lauren Bush Lauren, “Run Ten Feed Ten” is a program that allows Americans the opportunity to contribute to a good cause and take the benefits of giving home with them, too.
