Proceeds from the event will directly benefit the hungry in San Diego County through Jewish Family Service's Foodmobile and the San Diego Food Bank. Team Registration—A team can be as few as five walkers or runners. Teams of 20 or more who turn in their entries before November 6, 2009 will have their team name printed on the back of their t-shirts. You can register yourself as a team captain to start a team or you can join an already created team.Volunteering—Don't want to run or walk? More than 200 volunteers are needed to help make Run for the Hungry a success. Volunteers will help with registration, water stations, food stations, finish/start line, and more.
