Trot for Hunger 2021

St. Joseph's Joggers

Welcome! Once again our team is participating in SOME’s Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger! We hope you will consider joining and racing with us, and donating to support this crucial mission!  You can come in person or race "virtually" - whatever works best for you.  If in person we will meet again shortly before the race starts on the steps of the Wilson building for greetings and cool pictures!

The Trot for Hunger 5K raises essential funds and awareness to combat poverty in the Washington metropolitan area and provides a way for the community to help those experiencing homelessness on Thanksgiving morning. Proceeds from the 5K benefit thousands of homeless families and single adults, including the elderly and people suffering from mental illness, by providing much-needed food, clothing, access to healthcare, employment training, and long-term comprehensive addiction treatment programs.The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has only increased the need for SOME’s vital services and support.
