Feeding South Florida® to Host Annual Outrun Hunger 5K

at West Palm Beach’s Okeeheelee Park on Sept. 24 in Celebration of Hunger Action Month

West Palm Beach, FL – On Saturday, Sept. 24, Feeding South Florida®, the leading domestic hunger-relief organization in South Florida, will host its Annual Outrun Hunger 5K in Palm Beach County in celebration of Hunger Action Month. Returning in-person to the beautiful Okeeheelee Park, hundreds of runners, families, and community leaders of all ages will come together to take steps to raise funds and awareness to end hunger in South Florida.

Hunger Action Month, a nationwide initiative created by Feeding America®, takes place throughout September and is designed to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in America and inspire others to take action towards ending it. Throughout the month, Feeding South Florida will offer a range of events and activities to encourage South Florida residents to “go orange” and  engage in various hunger relief efforts.

Currently, Feeding South Florida is serving more than 1.1 million individuals through its network of partner agencies, Mobile FARMacy, choice pantries, home delivery meal program and distributions across its service area.

Registration for Outrun Hunger opens at 6:30 a.m. and the 5K will begin at 7:30 a.m. After the race, an award ceremony and a raffle will take place.

Participants can join the event as an individual or a team. Medals will be given for the top three places in each age category and overall best times for males and females. Those not participating in the race may also support the organization by creating a personalized fundraising page.
