The Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K is a fundraiser for two charities to meet the needs of as many hungry children in Brevard as possible. The Children’s Hunger Project and the Sharing Center of Central Brevard work hard every day to ensure children and families have adequate nutrition.

Health First once again serves as our Title Sponsor, and Mara Bellaby, Executive Editor of Florida Today will again serve as honorary chairperson.

In a year when running while masked is the norm, the 2021 Fight Child Hunger 5K Run/Walk was an amazing success! David Brubaker of Central Brevard Sharing Center kicked off the even with a beautiful National Anthem, while The Childrens’ Hunger Project’s Tammy Shelley led the warmup. Even with a chill in the air, the sky was beautiful and participants enthusiastic! Volunteers, vendors and sign holders encouraged the 5K runners, walkers and rollers every step of the way. Many thanks to the sponsors, teams and volunteers who helped ensure our success, meaning it’s a success for local children at risk of hunger. Thanks to our Honorary race chair, Mara Bellaby of FLORIDA TODAY, and to Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Mullins for their attendance and support for this 5K.
