Description


2014 Nutty Run 5K:

The 5th annual 5K Nutty Run will be raising money and spreading awareness to support Project Peanut Butters humanitarian work which aims to save over 2 million children by 2015.
According to Project Peanut Butter, it costs only $25 to save a childs life. By supplying a peanut-based Ready to Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), this project has had an enormous impact on lowering infant mortality rates, especially for families that have limited access to nutritious food and education. Feeding children with RUTF in the home setting has been proven to be more effective than the standard therapy for treating malnourished children (which consists of mothers receiving milk-based formula at hospitals). Project Peanut Butter reports that malnourished childrens recovery rates were only 25-40% for standard therapies compared to 95% for home-based treatment with RUTF. Moreover, since the paste is administered by mothers at home, mothers feel a sense of empowerment by bringing their children back to optimum health.
Keeping all these advantages of RUTF in mind, we will raise money to support Project Peanut Butters efforts in Malawi. Our event is serving both the Berkeley community by raising awareness for global malnutrition as well as communities in Malawi by providing the funds for Project Peanut Butter. We hope to raise over $1000 through this event, which would help treat an entire village of malnourished children for one year.

Last year's run was a great success and a great way to support an anti-poverty movement.
With over 110 runners and 20 volunteers, we were able to raise $3250 for the cause.
This year, we hope to have just as many runners and volunteers.

The run will begin at 9 AM, with registration between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM.
There will be live performances at the end of the run, and food will be available to participants!
