Rise Against Hunger will hold their annual race in Long Beach tomorrow

Long Beach, California – After holding multiple virtual races with hundreds of racers taking part in the past years in order to take a step forward towards the goal of ending world hunger, the nonprofit and relief organization Rise Against Hunger will finally hold their “Rise and Stride Race to End Hunger” in person.

The 5k and 10k races are scheduled to take place on May 21 at the Alamitos Beach bike path in Long Beach, starting at 8:30 a.m.

Since its founding in 1998, this organization aims to, as we mentioned before, end world hunger and has distributed 540 million meals around the globe.

Rise Against Hunger officials said the race is open to all ages and they hope the Long Beach community will take part in large numbers. Also, they are more than welcome to donate or sign up as volunteers to pack meals that will be distributed internationally.
