2014 Derby Run 5K and 10K
Racing to end the impact of poverty in Collin County, particularly hunger, The Seven Loaves Community presents Derby Run, a 5K & 10K Run, benefiting Seven Loaves Community. On race day Seven Loaves Community will be collecting canned tuna, canned chicken and canned fruit for the Food Pantry. A donation bin will be placed at the registration tables.
Seven Loaves Community, which serves over 1,000 monthly (half of which are children), was established in 2009. Since the opening of the Food Pantry, 2.8 million meals have been provided to 6,100 families. It is estimated in 2014 over 750,000 pounds of food will be distributed. The program has expanded and now includes Joseph’s Coat, a clothing closet, which provides an average of 4,000 garments each month; and Project Hope, a mentoring program with a focus on family, budgeting, education, health and other family matters; and referral services to medical access.
Strollers and dogs on leashes welcome.
