Engine 2 believes that it’s time for a change. That it’s time to fully embrace tasty, nutritious, whole plant-based foods and adding more activity to your daily life while ridding your diet of the junk (meat, dairy, refined and processed foods).
The inaugural the Engine 2 virtual 5k was a great success, raising money to improve children’s nutrition, and now you can do it again and earn your Harvest Hustle medal, shaped as a basket full of delicious fruit and vegetables.
Complete your 5k, 10k or Half Marathon by walking or running (or a combination of the two – this isn’t a competition, work at your own pace!) all at once or over the course of a week or more. This can be done on a treadmill, doing laps around the block, or outside anywhere you want. YOU CAN DO THIS! We hope that every time you look at your Harvest Hustle medal, you are reminded that you can achieve ANYTHING! You’ll also be doing your part to make healthy fruits and vegetables more accessible to kids across the country – a portion of your registration fee will be going directly to!
About the Charity: Whole Kids Foundation is on a mission to improve children’s nutrition by inspiring, educating and empowering kids to make better food choices. They do this in three ways: by providing school garden grants, funding salad bar equipment and training, and sharing cooking and nutrition education with teachers.
By registering for the Engine 2 Harvest Hustle, you and our community of “racers” will be DIRECTLY helping kids across the country discover the power of plants. Here’s a breakdown of just a few of the things we can achieve together for kids, based on the number of registrations for the Plant-Strong virtual 5k (for every registration, Engine 2 is donating $5 to Whole Kids Foundation):
- 1 registration: Funds a pair of gardening gloves
- 2 registrations: Funds a gardening trowel and watering can
- 10 registrations: Funds a garden wheel barrow
- 20 registrations: Funds a raised garden bed and starter plants
- 400 registrations: Funds an ENTIRE school garden!
Let’s do this, plant-strong nation! How many schools and kids can we help together?
