Black Girls RUN!/Drive to End Hunger 5K/10K

Date: Friday, September 14 - Saturday, September 16, 2012

Black Girls RUN! Drive to End Hunger is your chance to help tackle food insecurity in a different way. Black Girls RUN and AARP! will host the inaugural Black Girls RUN!/Drive to End Hunger 5K/10K Race Weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, September 14-16, 2012. The event will bring greater awareness to the nationwide efforts of organizations' Black Girls RUN! and AARP to fight obesity and hunger respectively.

While food insecurity plagues the United States, our country is also waging war against the highest obesity rates our nation has ever seen. Black Girls RUN! and AARP believes that everyone deserves the right to have healthy, nutritional food available at all times. Leading up to the race, Black Girls RUN! and AARP will collect donations from participants, volunteers and the public. The organizations will work to collect 100,000 pounds of food to be donated to Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless in Atlanta.

The Friday night mixer and the National Conference is for BGR! members and women only. The Pre Race Pasta Dinner and the Drive to End Hunger race is open to the public. Male runners/walkers are encouraged to participate as well.

Race Packet Pickup Information: You must show a photo ID to receive your race number and timing chip. If you are picking up a race packet for someone else, you must show a copy of their ID as well. Race numbers are required to participate. There will be no packet pick-up on race day.
