15th Annual Stockton Thanksgiving Run & Walk Against Hunger

Benefitting the Emergency Food Bank Stockton/San Joaquin

Stockton’s Thanksgiving morning tradition returns for its 15th year!

Here’s your chance to be a part of the fun Run and Walk Against Hunger, benefiting the Emergency Food Bank of Stockton and San Joaquin County.  The Michael David Family Foundation  is the main sponsor for the Run & Walk Against Hunger.  It is an annual 5K run/walk, a 10K (run only) and a Kid's 1/4 mile run and has become a family tradition for many families.

The scenic, flat and fast 5k run/walk and 10k run begins and ends at the Stockton Ports Banner Island Ballpark (404 W. Fremont in Downtown Stockton, California.) The course proceeds along both sides of the Stockton Deep water Channel past the Weber Point Event Center, returning and finishing back at the Ballpark.  Walkers have their own scenic waterfront course along the promenade.

Participants are also urged to bring canned foods, paper and plastic bags to the event. All proceeds benefit the Emergency Food Bank of Stockton/San Joaquin.
