IAM Goes the Distance at their Annual Conference

October 9, 2018 | 11:41 am | Written by

The International Association of Movers (IAM) is one of Move For Hunger’s longest standing supporters and have been pivotal in the development of our organization. Each year, IAM holds their annual conference with members attending from around the world to talk about global relocation strategies, tactics, and regulations. This year the conference was held in our Nation’s Capital at the Gaylord Convention Center located in National Harbor, just across the Potomac River.

While at every conference IAM has been generous enough to allow Move For Hunger to promote our mission, this year the staff and members went above and beyond by holding a 5K before the conference began. Runners and walkers from around the globe joined IAM staff members Terry Head (President), Charles “Chuck” White (Senior Vice President), Brian Limperopolus (Vice President), and Margaret Kerr (Programs Coordinator) in a fun run around National Harbor. Complete with timing, bibs, t-shirts, and medals, these members endured the heat and humidity to show their support for Move For Hunger and IAM’s own charity, Here 2 Help. Runners started with the new Air Force One replica in the background and enjoyed a course that lined National Harbor, finishing with a medal around their neck. Almost $10,000 was raised for the two charities with a special thanks to our event sponsors:

Course Signage Sponsors:
