Imagine living in a community where people are already going without food. Enter in a global health pandemic — experts predict COVID-19's impact will leave 265 million on the brink of starvation this year — and you have an even bigger problem. Since our inception, Moms on the Run has chosen to donate 10% of our profits to our charity partner, Feed My Starving Children. This year, Moms on the Run is proud to sponsor the Race to Feed Kids, Sept. 21-26, encouraging families to outrun 2020 and step in the gap against global hunger.
You can be a part of the race by creating a fundraising page here, choosing your activity goal and recruiting family and friends to join you. Your "race" can be any activity you want: run, bike, do chores, rake leaves. This event takes the place of FMSC's annual in-person fundraising gala. Join us in the Race to Feed Kids.
