Grind Out Hunger and Santa Cruz CORE Launch 5k River Run & 1 Annual FAMILY HEALTH EXPO Santa Cruz CORE Fitness + Rehab is on course to raise over $ 10,000  to fight hunger.  They are partnering with Grind Out Hunger to organize a fundraiser on June 22nd, the first ever Santa Cruz CORE 5k River Run.  Santa Cruz CORE and Grind Out Hunger are inviting the community to join the fun scheduled for the 4 Saturday in June by signing up for this 5k River Run along the beautiful San Lorenzo River levy pathway and fight hunger at the same time.  The run is followed by a day of family fun at the 1 Annual FAMILY HEALTH EXPO.

This year Santa Cruz CORE was honored with a Helping Hands Award given out by Second Harvest for the raffle they sponsored to fight hunger raising enough funds at last year’s event to provide 10,000 meals.  With the Expo, sponsorships, raffle and River Run, Santa Cruz CORE has set a goal to generate $ 10,000 for Grind Out Hunger.  This public-private partnership for the Free 1 Annual Family Health Expo and 5k River Run are still seeking runners and volunteers.
