Fight Child Hunger 5K
With more than 300 runners registered for the race on the day before the event, Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K – Run, Walk & Wheels exceeded all expectations for three organizations partnering for this 5K: Health First as title sponsor, The Children’s Hunger Project, and Sharing Center of Central Brevard. The quest to feed hungry children in Brevard led to the creation of this special 5K. Honorary Chairs Bob Gabordi and his daughter Jessica were onboard from the very beginning! Keith Gee of TCHP said on Friday, “The excitement this week has been building and I know this is going to be a fantastic event.”
We had 27 individuals and organizations which committed to help fight childhood hunger here in Brevard County, and you can learn more about them at thefightchildhunger5k.org (LINK) website.
With over 40 volunteers working the event as well as the support and partnership with Health First, FLORIDA TODAY, iHeart Media and Ropert and Partners SO MANY have gone above and beyond to make this event a success.
Kim Agee of Health First said to Keith Gee (as 300+ people lined up at the starting line), “Well, I guess we’re doing this!”
As a first-year event it was unknown how many people would sign up. Trying to make sure all the pieces were coming together over the months before the event’s culmination was no easy feat.
Don Piercy of Running Zone stated, “I love this course at Viera Hospital!”
It really was a beautiful run alongside the golf course and in a newer community in Brevard County, and all ages and abilities were in attendance
