“50 million people in the U.S.-one in four children-don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans.” – A Place At The Table
Freed McKeen, LLC has teamed up with the Glastonbury River Runners to bring you the “Freed McKeen Race To Fill The Pantry 5k”. The race is Sunday, November 10, 2013 in Glastonbury.$5 from every registration fee will be donated to the Glastonbury Food Bank. Participants are also asked to donate a non-perishable food item, such as canned vegetables or soup, boxed stuffing etc.
In 2012 the Glastonbury River Runners were able to donate $1900 to the town Food Bank, right in time for Thanksgiving. $1500 of this came from race registrations; $400 was donated by Whole Foods.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2013 was to run at least one mile every day. Today is day 127 of his run streak. I have pledged to donate one item of food for each day of my run streak.
The race is fantastic. The course is flat and fast. The race is very well organized. We hope to see you in Glastonbury this November. We’re proud to sponsor this outstanding race and give back to our community.
