GardenShare's first Fight Hunger 5K a success!

Thank you to everyone who made this first-time event a success!  It was a beautiful, if cool, day in Potsdam on Saturday, and we had about 50 runners/walkers join us for the GardenShare Fight Hunger 5K.  By the time we left, we had raised $6,724 to support GardenShare's mission to solve the problem of hunger in St. Lawrence County.

Everyone here - Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff - is thrilled with these results!  Thanks goes out to the great volunteer committee who planned the event, the coporate sponsors, all of the runners and walkers and their donors, and the amazing volunteers who came out to help on Saturday.

Here's just a sampling of some of our photos from the morning!

The great group of volunteers, many Clarkson students, ready to go to work!
