About This Activity

RUN WALK FOR HEALTH & HUNGER 2015

5K to benefit The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County

Take a bite out of hunger! This Run Walk will benefit The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. The course is USATF certified 5K showcasing the fast city roads of Stamford and beautiful Cove Beach. Participants can create teams or sign up individually.

  • In Connecticut, one out of every five children is hungry or at risk of hunger. School holidays and vacations are an additional strain, as these children do not receive the Federal Free Breakfast and Lunch while not in school.
  • In lower Fairfield County, the need for emergency food has doubled in volume in just the past 5 years.
  • The Food Bank distributes more than 2,000,000 pounds of food per year.


Please do not forget to bring non-perishable food items the day of the race!
