SOME’s 18th Annual Trot for Hunger 5K Run/Walk

This Thanksgiving be part of a time-honored D.C. tradition — SOME’s Trot for Hunger 5K run/walk.

This annual 5K run/walk helps to raise awareness and critical funds for SOME (So Others Might Eat), a non-profit organization that has been serving thousands of families and individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty in Washington, D.C. for 49 years.

In addition to providing 1,200 hot and nutritious meals every day of the year, SOME offers a wide range of services to our neighbors experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty, including:

  • Affordable long-term and transitional housing
  • Access to medical, dental and mental healthcare
  • Employment training
  • Long-term comprehensive addiction treatment programs

By participating in this year’s Trot for Hunger 5K, you will make a huge difference in our community. Best of all, you’ll get to enjoy Thanksgiving morning with your neighbors, family and friends at a fun and a revitalizing 5K in our nation’s capital!
