San Diego Run for the Hungry Returns to Downtown Thanksgiving Day

Proceeds Benefit Food Assistance Programs at Jewish Family Service of San Diego and the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank

2016_run for the hungry logoWHAT: Our hunger problem extends far beyond the homeless. Here in San Diego, one in three children and one in six adults struggle with hunger. 

To combat food insecurity across our county, thousands of San Diegans lace up their running and walking shoes on Thanksgiving morning and head downtown for the annual Run for the Hungry 5K/10K. 

Proceeds from the event directly benefit Jewish Family Service of San Diego’s food assistance programs and the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank.

WHO: Thousands of San Diego County residents will run/walk through the streets of Downtown San Diego, while more than 200 volunteers help with registration, water stations, food stations, finish/start line and more.

WHY: San Diegans are a giving bunch. Before they sit down to their own Thanksgiving feasts, thousands will run/walk/stroll to support others who aren’t as fortunate.

WHEN: Thursday, November 24
10K starts at 7 a.m. / 5K starts at 8:15 a.m.
