This year the 2020 deFacto Global 5k goes virtual!
We are pleased to announce the 2020 deFacto Global 5k is returning to Dynamic Communities Summit this year. This virtual event will kick off on October 6th and ‘run’ through October 31.
We have partnered up with Rise Against Hunger – 100 % of 5k proceeds will be donated to this charity.
Rise Against Hunger is growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies. The organization’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through our thorough monitoring and evaluation process, we ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.
The deFacto Global 5k is a charity fun-run held annually in conjunction with Dynamics Communities’ events. 100% of 5k proceeds are donated to a different local food pantry to help end hunger. Under the belief that no one should go without a meal, deFacto Global has proudly underwritten the event as a way of giving back to the host community.
This year we’ve set up a Strava club to keep track and post our runners results and are offering various prizes in our Video submission contests on our deFacto Global 5k Virtual Community Page.
