Harvest for Hope 5k Walk/Run
Walk, run, skip or jump! Bring your kids or your neighbors to our new venue: Oro Valley Marketplace’s multi-use path on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 4:00pm sharp (run starts at 4:30pm) for the eleventh Annual Harvest for Hope 5k Walk/Run. Harvest for Hope is a community event designed to bring hope to those who struggle to feed their families.
Giving back to those in need
It is hard to believe, but in our own community many people go to bed hungry at night. The Harvest for Hope 5k brings our community together to supply many families with the food they desperately need.
Participants walking or running this event do not pay an entry fee — we just ask that they bring a bag of non-perishable food that is donated to IMPACT of Southern Arizona, ( formerly Catalina Community Services Food Bank) and distributed to needy families. All participants will be entered into a raffle and will receive a finisher’s medallion. Prizes will be given out immediately after the 5k. The first 300 participants to register for this event will receive a free event t-shirt.
We have raised more than 23,000 pounds of food since Harvest for Hope started. This year we hope to raise a bounty of food donations, as the food bank is in even greater need. The IMPACT’s food bank provides emergency food assistance to 40% more families than last year.
