GardenShare plans fun run / walkathon

A great committee of volunteers is planning GardenShare's next fundraiser - a fun run and walkathon called the Fight Hunger 5K.  Volunteers are handling virtually all of the planning - recruiting corporate sponsors, setting up the route, getting donations of snacks and water, and a volunteer even designed the great logo!

How can you help?

Run, walk, pull the kids in a wagon—whatever works for you, join us to raise awareness and funds for GardenShare!  Runners, please note that this is a fundraising fun run and will not be timed.

Make it more fun by putting together a team from your workplace, school, or house of worship!

Event begins and ends at the Potsdam Farmers Market at Ives Park on Main Street.  Feel free to stay after and enjoy the Market!

How to get started:
  • Take a moment and go here to register and help the volunteers with the planning.
  • Gather a team, if you can, from work, school, or your place of worship!
  • Ask friends, family, classmates, or co-workers to make a donation to sponsor you and bring those donations with you to the event!  You can find a form for this purpose here.
  • If you’d like to raise money online, go to and set up a page for yourself.  Then you can e-mail friends and family to ask for a donation via your page.
  • Join us on October 10, bring your signed registration form and any cash or checks you have collected,  and come dressed for the weather.
