As part of my usual Thanksgiving tradition, I will participate in SOME’s annual Trot for Hunger 5K (in-person). This year is a bit different because I'm dedicating my race to my brother, Joshua Maher, who passed away in July 2021. It would mean a lot if you took the time to donate in his memory to support this worthy cause.
The run is held on Thanksgiving Day to benefit individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty in Washington, DC. The Trot provides essential support for SOME's programs and help ensure that hungry District residents have a hot meal on Thanksgiving Day and every other day of the year.
Due to covid-19, rising unemployment, and a lack of affordable housing, there are many adults and children in the community who are hungry and homeless. These individuals often also have mental health needs and fall through the cracks of social services.
I implore you to make a gift contribution in my name or register to participate in this year's Trot for Hunger. Our support makes a world of difference in the life of a child or adult in need.
