    5K Fun Run/Walk
    Raising Funds for Food Packs

    WoMN Strong is partnering with The Sheridan Story, a local non-profit dedicated to ending child hunger. This family-friendly event will raise money to provide weekend food packs for children in need in participating schools all over the Twin Cities. 
    Over 200,000 children in the state of Minnesota live with food insecurity, including 100,000 children in the Twin Cities. While there are many programs providing lunch and breakfast to children at school, the weekend presents a gap during which children struggle with hunger. The Sheridan Story is leveraging community and school partnerships to fight child hunger by providing a weekend's supply of food to hungry children.

    The Sheridan Story facilitates a partnership between community organizations. These organizations sponsor a school, which encompasses investing in the relationship with the school and also paying for, packing, and distributing food directly to the children. The Sheridan Story provides the logistical, sourcing, and organizational expertise necessary to execute the process of providing a weekend food supply. The goal of the partnerships is to feed hungry children while developing a lasting relationship between the community and the school.

    WoMN Strong is the sponsor for the children at University Elementary School in Blaine, MN for the 2019-20 academic year. The event will take place on Saturday, September 14th, 2019, at Aquatore Park in Blaine, within a few miles of our sponsored school.

    Our fundraising goal is $10,000

    Come run or walk with us to reach our goal!
    Invite your friends and family as we run from Aquatore Park around Cloverleaf neighborhood.
