Oklahoma City — The Oklahoma Municipal League is teaming up with DG Productions to host its inaugural 5K Fun/Run Walk to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Lake Hefner’s Stars & Stripes Park in Oklahoma City. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome. The registration fee is $25 per person which includes a T-shirt for each participant.

 “More than 675,000 Oklahomans will wake up hungry and worrying about where their next meal will come from,” said OML Executive Director Carolyn Stager.

Oklahoma ranks among the top five states in the nation in the number of people who are hungry. The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is “Fighting Hunger … Feeding Hope.” You can help stock their shelves by bringing a bag of non-perishable food and toiletries to the event.
