2015 Hunger Run Donation / Previous page

HUNGER RUN 5K BREAKS RECORDS

Organizers of the Clinton Hunger Run 5K are proud to announce the results of another successful event in support of the Van Buren County food banks. The third annual downtown run/walk has far surpassed the previous year’s totals with a donation of $8,000 to be divided between Clinton’s “Foods for Life” and the Choctaw Food Bank. This contribution is made in part with the help of a matching funds grant from Modern Woodmen of America.

The event took place on March 28th with a registration total of 250 in all age groups, from seasoned athletes to first-time runners. Participants and visitors kept the cold at bay with hot coffee courtesy of Rock N’ Java, snacks from the goodie tables, and a lively Zumba warmup, all broadcasted via KGFL’s live remote. Even family pets joined in the fun as people flocked to the downtown area to enjoy music, mingling, and cheering on the runners & walkers. Race director Meagin Warren announced the names of the top finishers in each of the ten age groups as they were awarded medals immediately after the race.

The success of the event itself, and the huge accomplishment of the fundraising team, is an outstanding credit to the participants, volunteers, and nearly 60 local sponsors. Their generosity will make a big impact on the non-stop efforts of those who are fighting hunger in our area throughout the year.

The next Hunger Run is scheduled for Saturday, March 26, 2016. Online registration will open in January. Visit www.clintonhungerrun.com for race results, sponsors, photos from Gray C. Photography, and information about sponsor & volunteer opportunities.
