Our race is well known for our awesome volunteers!! No other 5K race has the number of energetic volunteers along the course cheering runners and walkers on like the Race to Stop Hunger. We typically have 60-70 volunteers however, our new course won't need as many due to less turns and no cars near the runners on this beautiful, secluded course. This is our 7th race and we have fed over 222,000 children with the proceeds from this race alone. Our volunteers keep our runners and walkers safe and wanting to come back for more each year!
