Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare and JB Sports are teaming up to host the 2nd annual virtual 5K to help feed Connecticut residents struggling with hunger during this critical time. The Race Against Hunger Virtual 5K will run from April 5 through April 11 and is presented by Stop & Shop. Event proceeds will help Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare face increased operational costs to source, transport, and distribute food. Over the past year, demand for food across a network of 600 partners and programs has grown due to increased need during the pandemic.
Race Against Hunger is a virtual event perfectly suited for a time when people are encouraged to avoid crowded public settings. Participants can register and run or walk at any time between April 5 and April 11 at a location of their choosing. Participants complete their run or walk and send in their results and the event coordinator will compile a results database.
Race Against Hunger is organized by Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare and JB Sports. JB Sports, one of the top event management companies in Connecticut, also coordinates the Faxon Law New Haven Road Race and PLR Shamrock & Roll 5K.
