Fight Hunger 5K

Fight Hunger 5K

This year's Fight Hunger 5K walk-run will be held on September 22, 2019 at Fobare's Fruits, 180 Johnson Rd., Rensselaer Falls, NY., in conjunction with The Harvester, an inaugural agritourism cycling event hosted by Cycle ADK and St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.

Following the 5K and cycling tour, Fobare's will host a BBQ lunch (see price below), featuring local beer from In-Law Brewing, and full access to Fobare's grounds and venues. There will be live music from Crane School of Music Irish Ensemble Class from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.

In order to enjoy all the event has to offer --and to guarantee a t-shirt!--, participants must pre-register and submit payment for the 5K no later than Friday, September 6, 2019. As this is GardenShare's largest fundraising event for the year, participants are encouraged to raise additional funds through individual sponsorships. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers.
