Runners Feeding Others is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit fundraising campaign of the First Grace Foundation in Akron, OH. Our fundraising efforts support the various food ministries of First Grace which provide over 25,000 meals (and growing) each year to the hungry in Northeast Ohio.
Runners Feeding Others is a unique completely volunteer organization that is able to donate 100% (every penny) that we collect directly to helping feed the hungry. This is possible as all of our work is done by volunteers so we have no costs or salaries to pay unlike many other charitable organizations.
The donations we collect (both food and money) are largely collected by runners and walkers as sponsorships of their participation in various races. Please contact us if you are interested in joining the RFO team for an upcoming race to help us continue our fight against hunger in Northeast Ohio.
For 2011, we are pleased and honored to be official charity partners of both the Cleveland and Akron Marathons and we are looking for runners/walkers to join our team and help fight hunger in Northeast Ohio!
