Hungry Hungry 1/2 Marathon fundraiser for the Central Okanagan Community Food Bank

Each and every day, our hungry community must find strength and fortitude to be able to stay in their own race against all levels of adversity: Families struggling to makes ends meet, seniors struggling with fixed incomes, students struggling with tuition fees, children struggling with no breakfast… the list goes on.

Please help Teri raise $10,000 by June 1st, 2018 and help keep our much needed food programs running.

Together, we can make a difference. Help spread the word! Use the hashtag #BeatHungerWithTeri

Donation by phone or in person at either one of our branches.
