Team Move For Hunger is headed back to The City By the Bay this July to race away hunger and food waste at the iconic San Francisco Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 5K! Join us at this iconic race to run, walk and move through some of the most scenic areas of this majestic city, turning your miles into meals. Participants will enjoy traveling through the waterfront areas of Fisherman’s Wharf, the Embarcadero and even across the famous Golden Gate Bridge.
More than 4.8 million California residents are food insecure, with over 20% of those in need being children. Meanwhile, over 40% of all food produced in the United States ends up in landfills. What can you do to help? By joining Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations go to help keep much needed food on the table for many, instead of in the trash.
WHAT DO MY DONATIONS DO?
By becoming a member of Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations go to keep our nation’s food banks stocked and meals on the table. Our network of relocation industry specialists help to reduce food waste and deliver leftover food to our local food banks when people are moving. With 42 million Americans that struggle with hunger, your help is needed more than ever. And since 95% of every dollar donated is going back to our hunger relief and food rescue programs, you can be assured that your miles are turned into meals for those in need. In the last nine years, our network of movers, realtors and corporate housing providers have delivered 10 million pounds of food – let’s keep it moving!

WHAT IF DON’T RAISE THE MINIMUM?
Due to the enormous popularity of this event, we require a valid credit card number to secure a spot on the Team. If the minimum is not raised by the fundraising deadline of July 28th, 2018, the remaining balance will be charged to the card. When you create your fundraising page on Crowdrise, you will be prompted to enter a valid credit card number. Please note – You will only be guaranteed an entry if you enter your card and it will only be charged if you do not meet the fundraising minimum.
