GET READY TO RUN OR WALK TO FIGHT HUNGER AT HOME ...
Third Annual "Call to ACTCion: 5K Run/1.5 Mile Walk to Fight Hunger"
Slated for June 7
Prizes and Race T-shirts for participants
The third annual "Call to ACTCion: 5K Run/1.5 Mile Walk to Fight Hunger" fundraiser for the Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC) has been set for 8 a.m., Saturday, June 7, 2014 on the scenic, relatively flat Goucher College campus, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road, Towson, MD. (Registration and check-in: 7-7:45 a.m.)
When "Call to ACTCion" made its debut in 2012, 375 participants of all ages walked or ran in the event
that raised $17,000 for ACTC. This year we hope to top those figures to help alleviate the growing crisis of food hardship and hunger in our own communities. In 2013, the amount of emergency food provisions ACTC distributes weekly had increased by 9.6 percent over the prior year, from 472,965 pounds to 518,587 pounds valued at $596,065.
The crisis has worsened now that the lifeline to providing regular, healthy meals for the family by the use of food stamps has been drastically cut or dropped completely. Many of those affected are working, or they are kids, or they are disabled, or they are elderly.
Participants can register online at calltoactcion.eventbrite.com. The registration fee is $25 ($20 for 18 and under). Race packets and T-shirts while they last are to be picked up from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.on Friday, June 6 at Towson Presbyterian Church, 400 W. Chesapeake Ave., in Towson. Walkers and runners are encouraged to raise additional money by obtaining sponsors. All proceeds benefit the Assistance Center of Towson Churches.

Please note: Goucher's policy prohibits the presence of dogs and smoking on campus grounds.
