We were so excited to be a part of Human Arc’s Race To A Million event for the second year in a row. The event was held in Cleveland on September 26th. (A Lansing event is held on the tenth of October.) The goal of the race is to raise enough money to provide over 1,000,000 meals in the Cleveland and Lansing areas over the course of five years.
The event features a timed 5k run, as well as a 2k and 5k walk that is family friendly. Cash prizes were given out to those who had the best times. After the race was, of course, an awards ceremony, refreshments, face painting, a bounce house, and our Clear Choice Photo Booth. Last year the Race To A Million attracted more than 450, participants, which was the most they had ever had. The money goes directly to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
Since its inception in 2012, the event has raised enough money to provide almost 900,000 meals to hungry and food-insecure people in Ohio, Michigan and Missouri—home to the company’s three operations centers. Human Arc works with those in need to provide food, Medicaid and other necessary assistance. The money raised by the 2015 Race To A Million should put them well above their goal of 1,000,000 meals–reaching it in only 4 years!
