Runners Needed To Fight Hunger – HH5K Run
Be a part of the annual Hunger Hike 5K Run
Race to Feed the Hungry
| HH5K Run | Saturday, September 16 | Celery Bog Nature Area | 9 a.m. |
Hunger Hike also offers an opportunity for runners to be a part of the fight against hunger — the HH5K Run — one day prior to Hunger Hike (traditional 3K Walk). The HH5K Run is open to runners of all ages and abilities who share a common goal: Fighting Hunger!
The HH5K Run will convene in Celery Bog Nature Area. The course is mostly flat and paved and allows participants to run on a scenic route through West Lafayette including the Celery Bog in early autumn.
Advanced Registration (only $30) is encouraged. The purpose of the HH5K Run is to use physical exercise to draw attention to and provide funds for “Feeding the Hungry.” All HH5K proceeds directly support the Lafayette Urban Ministry food assistance programs including the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry; Food Finders Food Bank, Inc.; and St. Thomas Aquinas’ Haitian Ministry including the Haiti Water Purification Project. It’s an opportunity to support these outstanding local organizations while enjoying a serious 5K event.
