LEXINGTON’S RACE AGAINST HUNGER

2013 Post-Event Summary

The Thirteenth Annual Lexington’s Race Against Hunger took place on Saturday, February 23, 2013. Despite some heavy rain early on Saturday morning,  we had 972 registered to participate in this year’s event  The 10k run had 351 , the Reverend Bill Green 5k fitness walk/run had 532, and the one-mile fun run had 89.  The rain nearly began to cease just before the start of the race and only slight drizzles took place during the race.     In the 10k competition, Justin Bishop from West Columbia, SC led the way for the second straight year in 34:56.  Amy McDonaugh from Irmo, SC led the women for the third straight year in 39:23.  Amy achieved the second fastest female time ever on this course.

We raised the awareness levels of hunger both locally and worldwide, as we will donate $35,186.14 to our charities: Lexington’s Interfaith Community Services (LICS), Souper Bowl of Caring, World Vision, Oliver Gospel Missions, and Area Churches Together Serving (ACTS).  In addition, 856 lbs of food was donated to LICS during the event.  This food drive was headed by Lexington United Methodist Church.  Exact donation figures will be available in about one week.  This will bring our twelve year total donations to over $310,000.

Thanks to the 972 participants, approximately 90 law enforcement officers, over 70 volunteers, and all our wonderful sponsors, especially * BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina who accounts for over 25% of the generated income as they honor the memory of Curt Owens Jr.
