I am proud that I have been chosen as a Women's Health Magazine Action Hero! I will be participating in a great 10k race for a great cause called the Run 10 Feed 10.
About RUN 10 FEED 10
Right now, 49 million Americans are going hungry—they don't know when they will get their next meal. The reality is there IS enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life.
HUNGER IS THE WORLD’S MOST SOLVABLE PROBLEM.
It's something we can do something about. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN!
This fall, Women’s Health will once again host our run with a mission. Run a 10K with us, and you will instantly provide 10 meals for those going hungry in your local and surrounding neighborhoods. You can join us by racing in New York City, Chicago or San Francisco, or you can join us at Fun Runs nationwide. If you don't live in one of our host cities - you can still participate! Sign up to run your own 10K or start a team and host your own RUN 10 FEED 10 run. The money from your registration and fundraising efforts will go to those metropolitan areas nearest to you.
Please consider joining me! You can save $5 OFF any city's (or individual) registration by using code: WHDAHLEM. Do something good for yourself and for your community. As a teacher, I know that hunger affects more than just bellies, in affects a child's ability to learn. Let's #dogood together! All of the money raised goes to the Feed Foundation.
You not only will be raising money to feed the hungry in your local community, but you will cross the finish line with a sense of pride, accomplishment and some great SWAG. Check out the Feed 10 bag. I love mine and use it all the time!
If you don't want to run yourself, but you want to donate to the cause, please consider making a donation of any amount to https://www.crowdrise.com/colleendahlem1/fundraiser/colleendahlem You can also purchase products like the bag above through Feed as well to help the cause.
Also please vote daily through Aug 18th to get me a spot on the cover of Runners Workd Magazine! It would be a dream come true!http://covercontest.runnersworld.com/entry/331/
