We are so excited to recap our 2019 Running for Extra Table season!! It has been an awesome year of running and raising money for them!! Extra Table is a non-profit organization committed to ending hunger by providing food pantries and soup kitchens with the new and healthy food they need to feed the hungry in their community. There are over 600,000 Mississippians, including 225,000, children that don’t have enough to eat every day.
We started the year with 15 runners and ended with 25 runners. All together, we ran 23,207.67 miles and raised $10,000!! That will be used to purchase 30,000 healthy meals through Extra Table!! We cannot thank each runner for the time and miles they put in this year!! And of course, a big THANK YOU!! to each person that donated throughout the year! We would also like to thank all of our sponsors that partnered with us in 2019!!
Here are a few of the highlights from 2019
2. Global Running Day – John Dolan ran a 5k every hour for 12 hours, 119 runners ran with him throughout the day and we raised $3250 through Lululemon and another $500 through Fleet Feet Jackson.
3. Presented a $5000 check to Extra Table in July
Once again, we are so thankful for everyone that helped make 2019 a successful year raising money for Extra Table!! We are looking forward to running many miles and raising money for our next charity in 2020!! We will post about them soon!
