In June 2015, Performance Foodservice - Little Rock held its Inaugural Family 5K and 1 Mile Walk aimed at two worthwhile goals - promoting health and fitness among its associates and raising money for the Arkansas Foodbank Summer Cereal Drive.
Appropriately enough, the theme for the day was "Take a Run at Hunger," and that's exactly what 21 associates and their families did, raising more than $700 and collecting cereal at the event. With children home for the summer without access to school-provided meals, cereal is a critical need for most food banks across the country during the summer months.
This year, we are opening our 5K to the public! 100% of all race entry fees will benefit the Arkansas Foodbank / KTHV Channel 11 Summer Cereal Drive. Your donation provides hungry families in Arkansas with non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid-friendly. Your donations help provide healthy breakfast options for children and families in central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day - breakfast.
Entry fees are non-refundable. Postponement of the race may occur due to 1) ice or snow on the race course or 2) lightning in the area.
