Will You Accept the Heart of Hunger Winter Challenge?

It is easy to find ways to justify hibernating this time of year. But what if you were to put aside the excuses and get moving, knowing that it will help those in our community who don’t have enough to eat? That is just what United Way of Tri-County is hoping you will do before February 1st by registering for the Heart of Hunger 28 Day Fitness Challenge. 
 
Participants must commit to run or walk a minimum of one mile, outdoors, every day in February. Progress can be tracked via online leaderboards by those who enter their distances. There are no prizes for fastest times or furthest distance, but all who enter their distances for each day will be entered into a raffle to be drawn after the challenge is completed. Raffle prizes vary and will be posted. 
 
Funds raised from the $15 registration fee will help support United Way of Tri-County’s three food pantries located in Framingham, Marlborough, and Clinton.
 
“We really hope this event will, quite literally, get people moving to help us make a difference in our community,” said Paul Mina, United Way of Tri-County President & CEO.  “We have experienced unprecedented demand at our food pantry and hot meal programs since the start of the pandemic and the need continues with no end in sight. This challenge is a way for participants to help us continue in our mission to meet the needs of our community and help to raise awareness of our efforts to fight hunger.”
 
Get fit, get moving, and help fight hunger!  Participants will feel good knowing they are helping community members experiencing a truly difficult time.
