Watch out Windy City, Team Move For Hunger is back! Join the Team as we run, walk and move to turn our miles into meals at the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K this September! This scenic course starts in Historic Jackson Park and winds through Hyde Park, continuing on Lake Shore Drive to a dynamic finish at the golden Statue of the Republic.
Over 1.6 million people in Illinois require assistance putting food on the table, with over 19% of those in need being children. At the same time, approximately 40% of all food produced in the United States ends up in a landfill. How can you help? By joining Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations enable us to continue our life saving services of stocking our nation’s food banks and reducing food waste. With 95% of every dollar contributed going directly towards our programming, it’s a fun and easy way to help the hungry and make your race count. Thanks to our generous supporters, our network of movers, realtors and corporate housing professionals, we have successfully delivered over 7 million pounds of food to our local food banks.
