Register for the 2017 Food For Others 5k and Fun Run

Food For Others is an important part of Northern Virginia's safety net for those needing food when an emergency strikes and for the growing number of working poor who are unable to make ends meet and need to supplement their inadequate food supplies. 

Join Food For Others to help combat hunger in Northern Virginia, and run the Food For Others 5k and Fun Run on Saturday, September 9 at 8:00am.

5k and Fun Run: $30 until May 31
                           $35 June 1 through September 7 at 8:00 pm, when online registration closes
                           $40 during packet pick up and on race day

Be sure to register early, before August 22, to be guaranteed a shirt! 

Awards will be given to the overall male and female finisher as well as multiple team awards.

Food for Other's mission is to distribute free food to our neighbors in need, in partnership with our Northern Virginia community, and to provide opportunities for people to volunteer their resources.
