WHY RUN HUNGRY? Running Hungry is the opportunity to share in a typical Haitian discomfort: an empty stomach. In order to run hungry, we ask that you refrain from eating on race day until you have crossed the finish line. Those who take part will receive a wristband showing your sacrifice and an extra donation will be made in your name. Join us as we run on empty for Haiti, and help satisfy the rumblings of an entire nation…Run Hungry!
The Rice & Beans Rumble is a 5K run/walk benefiting Truth Evangelistic Ministries (TEM), a Fort Walton Beach Christian organization that has been ministering to the needs of Haitians for over 10 years.
All proceeds of the Rice & Beans 5K Rumble will go to TEM in its efforts to benefit the untold hungry in the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
Thank you for your generous partnership in our RACE to fill the Haitian people with a nourishing meal and a helping of hope. Join with us to make a significant difference in the lives of Haitians.
