RACE INFORMATION

Benefiting Hospitality House of Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center in Waterford food pantries in the Lakes Region.

Welcome to Outrun Hungers 8th annual 5k run/walk and 1 mile run/walk charity event. Grace Community Church of Commerce is partnering with Hospitality House of Walled Lake and Open Door Outreach Center of Waterford to raise $18,000 and feed 900 Lakes Region families this holiday season.

Did you know that a family of four can enjoy a hot meal during the holidays with a contribution of only $20.00? Pantry directors Donovan (Hospitality House) and Karen (Open Door Outreach Center), gave these statistics! Approximately 1,551 families and 3,635 individuals walked through their doors in need of food during November and December 2017... the demand often overwhelms the supply.

What's unique about Outrun Hunger? 100% of the funds raised, (excluding online transaction fee), goes back to our community. Participants love the fact that 100% of their registration and/or donation helps feed the hungry.

After warming up with fresh coffee from Biggby and Zumba by Body Language Fitness, the race takes place on the scenic Commerce Commons Pathway, just outside the Commerce Township Hall. Here, you will get to experience the trails peaceful, natural beauty from its wetlands and wildlife.
