Marathon For Hunger
I am pleased to announce that on May 30th, 2021 I will attempting my very first full marathon and fundraising for Daily Bread Food Bank Canada.
MY GOAL IS TO RAISE $10,000 TO HELP FEED FAMILIES ACROSS THE GTA THAT HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
Running a full marathon has been a personal goal of mine but this isn’t about my running. This campaign is about using my running to help those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I am truly blessed to be in the situation that I am in. During this pandemic I am able to keep my job, have a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in and most importantly not having to worry about when my next meal is going to be. I know there are many less fortunate people out there that have been severely impacted by the pandemic and are facing financial challenges and struggle to put food on the table.
That is why I’m fundraising to support Daily Bread Food Bank and why I need your help.
Your donation will help feed those who need it. With the pandemic the use of food banks have increased and the donations have decreased.
Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic the use of food banks had already increased by 5%, and by August 2020 this number increased to a staggering 51%. The pandemic has severely worsened the food insecurity crisis in Toronto as unemployment, insufficient income and unaffordable housing are driving this crisis.
So how many families could $10,000 feed?
It is predicted by Canada’s food price report of 2021 that an average family will spend about $13,907 this year on groceries which is 5% more than last year. With that estimate $10,000 could help feed about 34 families for a week!
Your donation goes directly to Daily Bread Food Bank without the use of a third party platform.
For those who are wondering this is not an official or public marathon. This is just me running the distance of a marathon by myself to help fundraise for the Daily Bread Food Bank.
