Race to Fight Hunger in America: Chicago's Run10Feed10

Women’s Health’s wildly popular race and fundraising event, RUN10 FEED10, is coming back to Chicago on Sunday, October 6, 2013!

This year's 2nd annual event inspires people to race to fight hunger in America and will include a bonus yoga session, nutrition and beauty consultations, great giveaways and more!


WHO:  Join Women’s Health Magazine, FEED and its founder, Lauren Bush Lauren, and thousands of amazing men and women runners in the fight against hunger.

WHAT: This fall, Women’s Health magazine will hostRUN10 FEED10 in Chicago. The concept is simple: run a 10K with us and provide 10 meals for those struggling with hunger in San Francisco. Last year, RUN10 FEED10 raised 1 million meals nationwide!
Timed 10K races will also be taking place across the country in New York and Chicago.  People living in Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle can participate in one of Women’s Health’s “Fun Runs” and if runners do not live in one of our host cities, they can still participate by signing up to run their own 10K. The money from the registration and fundraising efforts will go to their nearest metropolitan area food bank. Download the official, free RUN10FEED10 app to plot your training course. 
The day will include:
·         An unforgettable experience running at 10K for those in need
·         Pre-and-post race activities including guided stretches and yoga with a special guest trainer
·         Tons of freebies, experiences and giveaways from FEED, Dove, Degree, Lipton Tea, Simple, Kellogg Nourish, OPI, Vaseline, Birkenstock, Sketchers, Cigna, Ford Fiesta, and more.
WHY: Right now, over 50 million Americans are food insecure, meaning they don't know from where their next meal is coming. The reality is there is enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life. The other reality is that we can do something about it. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN!
