The Cause:  

The Homecoming 2013 Run for RAH 5K and 1-Mile Fun Walk marks the Rutgers University Alumni Association’s 5th annual race event in support of Rutgers Against Hunger! RAH is a university-wide initiative working to increase awareness of hunger, encourage activism and service to tackle hunger, stimulate research to assist those in need, and provide immediate relief through food drives and other events to raise money and collect food.

Proceeds from Run for RAH 2013 will benefit The Middlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distribution Services (MCFOODS). MCFOODS collects and distributes nonperishable items at no cost to over 80 local food pantries and soup kitchens throughout the County as well as residential facilities, shelters, social service agencies, programs for women and children, senior citizen housing facilities and other outreach services.

Participate in or donate to Run for RAH to help families in need in our community!
