World Food Run

Thu October 1 - Sat October 31
Event: World Food Day 5k
Date: All of October

Gather your friends and neighbors to run/walk/crawl the 5k and then celebrate with each other after. It's the perfect socially distant event for sororities, fraternities, cross country teams, fall sports teams, youth groups, fitness clubs, etc. You can even spread this out over the course of the entire month and walk a block a day to cover the distance. Add #WorldFoodRun to your photos from this event, and we'll be sure to see them!

Event: 55 Mile Vivid School Challenge
Date: All of October

Run a mile for each of the 55 children at Vivid School. These elementary-aged kids live in the Korail Slums of Dhaka. They look forward to food from Thrive as their main source of nutrition. Mangoes are their favorite!

To feed this school for an entire year, we'll need to raise $6,600.
If you can do this through your fundraising page, you'll get a personal call from the director herself! Maybe even a student, too!

Event: 120 Mile Piet Van Challenge
Date: All of October

120 Miles? You've got this! Here's your inspiration: The 120 children attending Piet Van School in the Baridhara Slums of Dhaka.

Piet Van has doubled in size since Thrive has come into their lives. They moved from running classes out of a little garage that flooded with every rain, and are now in a full-fledged building with running water, electricity, and a solid roof.

Event: 225 Mile Happy Land Challenge
Date: All of October

Can you average about 7 miles a day? Yes, you can! Do it for 225 kids living in Happy Land in the Tondo Slums of Manilla, Philippines.

Many of these children collect recyclables to earn money for their families to spend on food. With your help, we can help them worry about one less meal.

Event: Go Bananas Challenge! - Design Your Own
Date: All of October

To pay respect to Thrive's initial promise of 250 of this potassium-packed fruit to just as many school children, you must now GO BANANAS!

Create a goal that's perfect for you! Think biking around the country, climbing mountains, swimming across lakes, ice skating, ping pong-ing, handstanding, jumping rope, shooting hoops, reading books. Make sure to let us know what you choose, and if we love it enough, it may just show up as an official event next year!
