Community Caring Center’s Hunger Walk & 5K Run

March 4, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 11:55 pm

Hundreds of amateur runners, fitness enthusiasts and even entire families are expected to take to the streets of this seaside community on Saturday, March 4 with a common goal of ending hunger in Palm Beach County and feeding those in need, including the elderly. The proceeds are used to support the Community Caring Center’s programs like senior hunger, nutrition education, children’s gardening and other programs to stock our food pantry. Palm Beach County seniors and children are three times more likely than the national average to face food insecurity, meaning that they do know where their next meal will come from. This is a wonderful thing to do with your children. Lots of parents ran with their children last year. You can push your baby carriage over to the beach and back, while the runners will be timed and have the ability to use their results to qualify for other events. This year is especially exciting to join efforts with the City of Boynton Beach’s March campaign for “Let’s Move, Boynton Beach, which is in step with CCC’s vision of “Creating a Healthier Community.” All of the time for runners and walkers will be registered to support a county-wide city competition sponsored by Palm Healthcare Foundation. The city came in 2nd last year. CCC is so excited that its walk/run event can possibly push them over the top in this year’s competition.  The CCC helps some 5,000 people per year and serves up 8,000 pounds of food each month. This event is family and pet friendly!
