Event Description

     Welcome to our 4th Annual Hungry Hearts 2016 5k Fun Run for Refugees With Scavenger Hunt and Harvest Festival which takes place in the scenic Southcoast Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes, Ca. This year we will be adding a new twist to the run. It is geared towards having fun as you support the Refugees! In addition to your T-shirt, this year you will get a knitted hat made by the refugees (wolf, sheep, bear, frog, or bunny as a Harvest twist) 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 will get medals. Attendees can do 1 lap, 2 laps or 3 laps and each lap you receive a free item from the business community. In addition, lots of great prizes will be available by raffle. Each runner will receive one raffle ticket and can purchase more at the race. After the race is our Harvest Festival which includes last year’s taco lady with free breakfast taco's (beef, chicken or scrambled egg), a DJ and music, Balloon specialties for the kids, face painting, games, hippity hops and races, art made with gum drop candies, harvest festival booths, sponsor booths, knitting items for sale, etc. 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. 
   There is a limited number of runners allowed to run so register early to ensure a spot.
