5K 2020HEALTH FIRST FIGHT CHILD HUNGER 5K RUN/WALK January 11  2020 was a wonderful success for hungry children in Brevard!

I wanted to give you my thoughts on the 5K. Once again, this was a very smooth event. Logistics of an event this size can be quite daunting, but our team are now masters of making this look easy.

We had a lot of volunteers! Cheryl does such a great job coordinating our volunteers. The time she invests into communicating with all of these folks definitely makes an event like this a success. Some of our regular volunteers, James, Todd and Barbara rocked the house! I don’t want to imagine where our organization would be without folks like this!

I heard so many positive comments about the pancake breakfast. The Lions do such a great job and people really seemed to appreciate it.

Our sponsors and vendors are so very appreciated! View our sponsors below.

I want to thank the board members who attended. Tina, Rosy, David, Ben and Michael, thank you! With Ben (Mayor of Cocoa Beach) we had two mayors in attendance!

Digital signs promoting our event from Centerstate Bank and Marine Bank were amazing. There was great Facebook promotion leading up to our event (thank you Sherry!). The oranges donated by Sysco were very good and juicy! We once again grew this event. We had just over 600 register – up from 490 last year!

Thank you to our staff. Cheryl, Amanda and Lori go above and beyond on a REGULAR basis. They bring their families to our events and work tirelessly without questioning why or how. They just get it done!

Highlights from this year’s Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K Run/Walk January 2019

The Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K Run/Walk 2019 had a record number of participants, vendors, and supporters! Many thanks to the wonderful sponsors for this event. Thanks to ongoing support, we have served Brevard County children with weekend packages of food without missing a single week since 2010. To continue serving and help those still on the wait list for weekend food fuels our passion and compassion to work on behalf of hungry kids in Brevard.

With 500 participants this year at the Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K, everyone enjoyed a pancake breakfast and band, with a food packing event prior to race start. Cheering and encouraging the participants were Viera Charter School cheerleaders!

This event helped raise awareness of the efforts to fight childhood hunger by Health First, The Children’s Hunger Project and the Sharing Center of Central Brevard.

Bob Gabordi of Florida Today and his daughter Jessica were honorary co-chairs for the event.  Said Bob, “Children have always been my passion, and hungry children and hungry people in Brevard County just feel so totally unacceptable to me.”

A team of volunteers stepped up to make sure this 5K ran smoothly, from pre-race packing to pancake breakfast, to awards and parking!

It takes a village to help make life better for hungry kids in Brevard. The Children’s Hunger Project and Sharing Center of Central Brevard are especially grateful to those sponsors, volunteers and media supporters who ensured that fewer kids in Brevard County will go without food.
