The Freestore Foodbank is partnering with Panera for Panerathon on September 19, 2010. In response to the increase in childhood hunger, Panera is asking the community to participate in the Panerathon 4- mile run and 2-mile walk/run in Hyde Park Plaza where all proceeds will benefit the Freestore Foodbank’s Power Pack program.
Thousands of children are hungry, just around the corner from where you are now. Their minds and bodies are suffering and they’re struggling to learn, to laugh, to play and to just enjoy being a kid. Children are especially vulnerable to issues of hunger and Panera wants to make sure that they aren’t deprived of something that we all take for granted—food.
By participating in Panerathon you can help provide funding so that the Freestore Foodbank’s Power Pack program can provide hungry children with a bag of nutritious, kid friendly, easy to prepare food items that they will take home with them.
Please join us at Hyde Park Plaza on September 19, 2010, Race starts at 9am and registration opens at 7:30am or Register online.
Everyone is welcome, including kids, strollers and pets! Medals and gift cards will be awarded to the
top three finishers. A finish-line celebration features fresh bagels, pastries and sandwiches from Panera Bread, plus fun games for the whole family. Please join us at Panerathon this year and help us feed hungry children in our community.
