The purpose of the Hunger Hike 5K Run is to use physical exercise to draw attention to and funds for “Feeding the Hungry.” On Saturday, September 20, more than 85 runners and speed-walkers took part in the HH5K Run 2014 — the Race to Feed the Hungry. It was a cool morning and the skies were clear and the sun was shining — a perfect day for a race.
The HH5K Run 2014 convened at Cumberland Park (Salisbury Street, West Lafayette) with start/finish on the beautiful grassy field of the park. The latest “chip technology” was used to give all runners an accurate race result time.
The HH5K Run winners are pictured to the right. First Place in the Youth Category was Aidan William (pictured top center). In the Male category—1st Place: Steve Phillips (pictured top right); 2nd Place: James Spencer (not pictured); and 3rd Place: Jeremiah Dole (pictured top, left). In the Female category (pictured bottom from L to R) — 1st Place: Emily Conley; 2nd Place: Whitney Lyle; and 3rd Place: Miranda Mott. All Hunger Hike 5K Run 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. Hunger Hike 5K Run gave serious runners an opportunity to support these outstanding local organizations while enjoying a 5K event.
