2016 EGFBS Run 4 Hunger Finish Line Success

   run-4-hunger-2016

 

The 2016 EGRun4Hunger, Saturday, June 25th, was another great success with over 900 participants supporting the Elk Grove Food Bank Services!

After a great opening ceremony the Kids Fun Runs began at 8 a.m. and 8:10 a.m. with a quarter and half mile race. EGPD's Office Leo, California Fitness' Captain CFF and Fire Station #71 were all there to give the kids a hand.

Everyone had a great time with the neighborhood along the route getting involved with balloons and asking if runners wanted a cooling hose down! And music played a part with K-HITS 101.5 at the starting line, DJ Rick Henderson near Rotary Grove and the Taylor Chicks at the east entrance to the park. And a total of 35 booths offering information, tasty samples and freebies of all sorts.

A great big thank you goes out to the community for supporting the Elk Grove Food Bank once again!
