Every spring, multiple Southwest Portland Faith Organizations and Community Partners join hands to meet the need of hunger specifically, by working to supply Neighborhood House’s food pantry, the largest food pantry west of the Willamette.
The 2018 SW Hope 5K raised a total of $20,278 - the equivalent of 81,112 pounds of food!
We invite you to run with us in our fourth annual SW Hope Feed the Hungry 5K on Sat. April 6, 2019 at 9:00am at Gabriel Park because each $1 we raise together far outweighs it’s worth in canned goods individually. If we run together, our neighbors here in SW Portland won’t have to experience the insecurity of not knowing where their next meal is coming from.
Cost (all ages welcome - includes t-shirt!):
Jan 1 - Jan 31 = $30/person
Feb 1-April 5 = $35/person
Race Day (Apr 6) = $40/person
Kids Fun Run Pricing (age 10 and younger - includes t-shirt!):
Up until Race Day = $10/child
Race Day = $15/child
T-shirt deadline: Register by Wednesday, March 13, 2019
Where: Gabriel Park - SW Vermont and SW 45th Ave, Portland, OR 97219
We think its fitting to run in the community we are seeking to nourish. Join your community for a sprint/jog/moseying walk through the woodsy forest of Gabriel Park, passing scenic views, baseball fields, and tennis courts – an invitation to play afterwards!
