Running and the Atlanta Community Food Bank have a lot in common when you think about it.
Running brings a sense of community; of camaraderie. It has a magical hold on those who are fanatics (some of which are in our own offices). It brings a sense of calm and, in a very physical and mental sense, it means a healthy body. Runners help and encourage each other and even step up in a time of need.
The same principles of the running community can be applied to the Food Bank. With the help and support of the community, we’re able to bring food to those in need through our partner agencies and, hopefully, some peace of mind. We help and encourage one another daily, and when there’s a time of need, the community responds.
Are you a runner looking for a way to help our community? The Atlanta Community Food Bank has a limited number of slots available for the Peachtree Road Race which will be held on July 4. Email email@example.com for more information on how to get a number. We’ll see you out there!
