5k Run / 1 Mile Fun Run
May 14, 2022

With Fairfax County being one of the wealthiest counties in our nation, it’s surprising to hear that there are a significant number of children who do not have enough food to eat on a regular basis. In 2019, 23,000 children experienced food insecurity. ​Now, because of COVID-19, that number has doubled, leaving 1 in every 6 children in Fairfax County suffering from food insecurity.

Many children rely on free and reduced price meals at school for food. A Power Pack, which contains seven meals, helps to alleviate hunger for local children in need over the weekend when not in school. All of the Power Packs we pack at the finish line will be distributed to local schools through Food for Others. ​Feeding over 2,600 families each week, Food for Others is one of the largest distributors of free groceries in Northern Virginia.

Last year in our inaugural year we had over 300 people participate in the race, we packed 14,700 meals and raised over $24,000. We know together we can do even bigger things this year!

We cannot do this without the help of sponsors in the Greater Fairfax County area.
