South metro families can take strides together for health, wellness and hope this May. Valley Natural Foods will be hosting its inaugural 5K walk/run – the “Run for Hope”- to benefit Hope for Tomorrow, a local non-profit mentoring organization for young boys and girls. The event will begin and end right outside the Valley Natural Foods parking lot on Saturday, May 7th, 2011. Participants must pre-register at www.runforhope5k.com by April 7th, 2011 to receive a free t-shirt. Register today!
All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Hope for Tomorrow. This organization partners kids with successful individuals in the community, based upon the theme: “Partnering with Tomorrow’s Leaders.” These mentors meet with the students once a month, utilizing curriculum focused on confidence building, planning for the future and building a healthy, mind, body and spirit.
