Help Project Open Hand Serve 1 Million Meals This Year

Ever since I was officially announced as a Starting 9 Giant Race Ambassador I've been able to share some really cool things with you: Giant Race swag, a Giant Race discount code and breaking updates. All of those things are awesome, but being a Giant Race ambassador is about more than that. I hope that seeing me run inspires others to run - or engage in a fit lifestyle. I also hope to encourage others to give back to our community by donating to the @GiantRace beneficiary, @ProjectOpenHand.


Project Open Hand helps critically ill neighbors and seniors in the Bay Area with the following services:

  • Meals: Nutritious meals to people living with critical illness. Meals are available for pick up. For clients who are homebound, they offer home-delivered meals. 
  • Groceries: For clients and caregivers who are able to prepare meals, they offer healthy groceries that can be picked up once a week.
  • Nutrition counseling and education: All clients receive a nutrition and wellness assessment from Registered Dietitians when starting service. Dietitians are also available for regular check-ins and advice.

Last year, @ProjectOpenHand served over 900,000 meals to critically ill neighbors and seniors in the Bay Area. Let's help them hit 1 million this year! YOU can help them reach that goal!

My fellow Starting 9 Giant Race Ambassador Angela Polione is fundraising for Project Open Hand this year. Would you please consider visiting her fundraising page and making a donation? Every dollar counts. No donation is too small. Thank you for doing your part to help others in our community. Together we are Giant!

See you at bib pick-up 9/9/2016 and at the races 9/11/2016! If you haven't registered yet, use discount code IRUNDISNEY to knock $10 off the registration price!
