The 6th Annual Compass Run For Food is a 5K run/walk and 10.5K run in Orangeville on Saturday, June 8, 2019. All proceeds go to local food security initiatives.
Back in 2014, we saw a need in our community. There were so many people going from day-to-day not knowing where their next meal would come from. To us and others in our community, we felt compelled with a burden to do something about it. This is how the 5K 4 Food started. It was an opportunity for people from around the community to run for a cause greater than themselves.
So let’s fast forward a few years. With a name change and a few logos later, we’ve seen something great happen. This has turned from an event into a movement that has spread throughout our towns and now across our region.
Together we have raised over $126,000 in support of feeding the hungry in our area… and we are just getting started. This year we are looking to raise $60,000 and this is our biggest goal yet. All of the proceeds raised go towards feeding the food banks and the school meal programs across our region. This is a huge goal, and just like every other year, but not more than ever we need your help.
We are so grateful for the support of our volunteers, our corporate sponsors and all of those who have run over the years. We’ve seen first hand and have heard story after story about the impact of this event in our region. None of this would be possible without your support.
This year we want you to join us as we celebrate our 6th year on this journey. You can register to run or walk, spread the word, volunteer, donate or become a corporate sponsor for the Compass Run For Food on Saturday, June 8th, 2019. The time for change is now and we know when we come together we can make a difference.
