Join us in 2017 for the 13th annual “Race Against Hunger”, the largest 5K in the Central Valley benefiting Visalia Emergency Aid Council (VEAC). From its humble beginnings in 2005 at a supermarket parking lot with 250 participants, the “Race Against Hunger” has grown to over 5,000 participants comprised of businesses, civic organizations, families and friends. It has become the premiere advocacy event for alleviating hunger in Tulare County.
Visalia Emergency Aid Council also believes that we must inspire the future generation to care for their community and have incorporated a “Kid’s Race” in our annual event. The ¼ mile race provides children with the opportunity to give back…“Children Helping Children”…while promoting health, fitness, and fun. The 5K run/2 mile walk challenges participants to form teams and creatively dress for the event on Thanksgiving morning.
