Joseph Henry probably doesn’t need to lose weight, but he is making a pretty impressive commitment to help fight hunger. In a great follow up to the Stefaan Engels story from yesterday, this UAB Public Health graduate is making a more direct effort to reduce hunger with his endurance.
He is planning on running 500 miles to raise money for the United Nations World Food Programme. His journey will begin in front of the White House, and end in Ontario, Canada at the Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit. I personally would have picked a time of year with better weather for that journey, but that is just a referendum on his commitment to the cause.
He will run 30 or so miles per day, and make several stops at universities along the way.
You can donate at his website, hunger500, which I strongly encourage you to do.
Just one more creative way someone is helping to fight hunger.
