About This Activity

Join us at beautiful Wilson Park for the 3rd Annual tRUNk 5K and 1/2 mile Fun Run to benefit the Twigs Feeding Program! The Twigs program began in the summer of 2011 with the hope of alleviating childhood hunger in the Granite City area by serving free summer lunches to children who receive free and reduced lunches during the school year. Since then, Twigs has expanded to 23 sites in seven cities and served well over 56,000 lunches in the summer of 2013. Other programs have been created through Twigs, including a Mobile Food Market; a Pack-a-Sack program; and a Food Fair. While need continues to grow, the expanse of this program will only be as large as our financial means can provide. Please join us for this event, and support this wonderful cause!
