Successful First Ever 5k to End Child Hunger

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Great Falls turned out in numbers on this snowy day to walk and run against child hunger.

"Today we're gathered to have a fun run to raise awareness to fight childhood hunger," says Student leader Natalie Hofstand.

Today is the first ever Get Involved 5k fun run and distance walk. Folks were out today to brave the snow and cold to eliminate childhood hunger.

"That's right a lot of youth leaders have gathered together to help out. we have lots of kids from Great Falls High and CMR and Paris Gibson all the schools around have joined together and their youth leaders have stepped up to the plate," adds Hofstand.

Even our own Meteorologist Adam Koslen joined in to run for this cause.

"I ran with our dog Meeno and he was kind of leading the way he was pulling me a little you know the snow was kind of in your face, it was cold going up the hill. down it wasn't so bad we got moving and it was a lot of fun, it was a fun run it was for a great cause fighting childhood hunger great to see a good crowd come out here," Says Koslen.

Even Governor Steve Bullock and his family made it out in support as well.

"On the way down it was wonderful. it was from the perspective really, this is all about ending childhood hunger so the whole family was real excited to get out today," says Governor Bullock.

"It's an amazing cause I see kids like at my school we have kids bring food and then over the break we give them giant bags and so I'm really excited that we are eliminating childhood hunger,"adds Caroline Bullock.

The walk served it's own purpose as folks who walked the track earned the equivalent of 2,000 pounds of food donated.

"My student in Need got involved because we have donors that contributed money and so we're going to go and we're going to buy 2,000 pounds a ton of food and donate to the area schools pantry,"says Dave Snuggs.

My neighbor in need will be collecting and donating all of the food by this spring.
