Event Description

     Welcome to our 6th Annual Hungry Hearts 2018 5k Fun Run/Scavenger Hunt/Harvest Festival for Refugees which takes place in the scenic South Coast Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes, Ca.  Our race is geared towards having fun as you support the Refugees! In addition to your T-shirt, again you will get a squirt gun and knitted hat made by the refugees. There will be a scavenger hunt on the first lap for those who don't want to do all laps with prizes awarded for the top 10 Scavengers! There will be a clock for personal timing of your run. We will time the first 25 runners and the top 3 men and women will get medals. Attendees can do 1 lap, 2 laps or 3 laps. Lots of great prizes will be available by opportunity drawing too. Each runner will receive one opportunity ticket and can purchase more at the race. After the race is our Harvest Festival which includes a taco lady with free breakfast taco's (beef, chicken or scrambled egg), a DJ and music, face painting, games, hippity hops and races, hula hoops, arts and crafts, harvest festival and sponsor booths, knitting items for sale, etc. All proceeds from this event go to Syrian Refugee relief.  Don't miss out on a great day! 
     Hungry Hearts international is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that focuses on caring for men, women, widows and children at risk around the World. We aim to aid the refugees through work programs, vocational training, distribution of goods and trauma relief.   

Setting up a team or fundraising page is a great way to get your friends and family involved with helping too!  You can set one up yourself during the registration process OR have us create it for you by simply sending an e-mail to Lynn Lavezzari:
