In 2011 we launched Outrun Hunger (a 5K race for charity) to raise money to feed 100 families during the holiday season. 100% of the race registrations/donations (excluding online transaction fee), went towards that goal. In addition, a number of local area businesses donated time, product and/or services for the event.

2019 marked our ninth annual charity event, with the support from our community, our expectations were exceeded yet another year.

  • 273 racers registered from our community
  • 66 volunteers from our community and Grace Community Church (www.gotgrace.info)
  • 86 donors graciously gave
  • 23 sponsors supported our race
  • $18,636 was raised for Hospitality House in Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center in Waterford
  • 931 families in the Lakes Region were able to enjoy a hot meal at Thanksgiving or Christmas

Exciting results, but our job isn’t done.  According to our partner organizations, they served 915 families and 1,982 individuals in November and December 2019, the “demand” often overwhelms the “supply.”

From 2011-2019, Outrun Hunger has raised $119,212 feeding 5,960 families.  We pray that Outrun Hunger continues to be a charitable event that is both fun for you AND meaningful for our community.  We’d love to have you join us this year, Saturday, November 14, 2020 for our 10th ANNUAL event!  In the meantime, you can “like” us on Facebook and/or “follow” us on Twitter and Instagram to stay connected with the Outrun Hunger family.
