Hummelstown Hunger Run 2021

COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE 6TH ANNUAL HUMMELSTOWN HUNGER RUN!
 
Mark your calendars! The 6th Annual Hummelstown Hunger Run is scheduled for Saturday, May 8th at 10:00am.  All proceeds benefit the Hummelstown Food Pantry.  We are excited to announce the addition of a 5 mile run option for 2021!  Anyone who registers or volunteers will receive a gift bag that includes a race t-shirt, among other things! T-shirts are guaranteed if registered by April 20th.  Online registration closes on April 30th.  Event-day registration will be available that morning.
 
At past events, registrants and volunteers who brought a non-perishable food item for our collection bin were entered into a drawing for one of the many gift certificates provided by our local sponsors. Due to COVID protocols this year, we will draw for the gift certificate from participants and volunteers that pre-registered and include their prizes in their race bag. Donated non-perishable food items on race day would still be appreciated.
 
COVID-19 has had an impact on our community and with that the Hummelstown Food Pantry has seen an increase in families that need assistance. The Pantry currently serves 80-90 families weekly. The Pantry’s annual expenses range between $20,000-$25,000. We are asking for your support to help us fulfill our goal of meeting the Pantry’s yearly financial obligation. 
 
If you wish to donate in support of the race, please make checks payable to the Hummelstown Food Pantry (note – for Hummelstown Hunger Run) and mail to: Hummelstown Hunger Run c/o Jill Osevala, 117 Stone Mill Road, Hummelstown, PA 17036.
 
If you are a business owner willing to help out as a sponsor, bless you!  Please contact Jill Osevala to learn about sponsorship benefits at 717-512-6922 or email HtownHungerRun@comcast.net.
