World Compassion Network would like to say thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and participants for making our 6th annual Run/Walk for Hunger a huge success. Almost 500 people braved the cold, snow and sleet to partner with us for our community. Together we raised over $10,000 to help those in need in our community- it was absolutely awesome! Check out the Vimeo link below with lots of great video from the event. Together we are making a difference!
We are currently planning our 6th annual World Compassion Network Run/Walk for Hunger 5K for 2014. The race will take place on March 29th in Winona Lake. The race has grown to be one of the largest 5Ks in the area, with consistent numbers of 500-700 participants each year. It is a great way to promote hunger/poverty awareness in our area as well as promoting healthy life styles.
As you know, 100% of the net proceeds from the event go to local charities and events which help the needy in our area. Over the past 5 years we have been able to raise over $40,000 dollars to help support these organizations that fight poverty in the Kosciusko County area. We are currently seeking sponsors and runners for the event.
