GREENSBORO, N.C., May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prophecy Healthcare Inc. has become a corporate sponsor for the local Rotary Club of the Triad's 5K and Fun Run being held around the campus of River Landing in Colfax, NC. Scheduled for Saturday, May 31st, 2014, the Fun Run will begin at 8:30am followed by the 5K at 9:00am. Proceeds of the Rotary Club of the Triad's 5K and Fun Run will benefit the international hunger relief agency "Stop Hunger Now."
First chartered in 1978, the members of the Rotary Club of the Triad provide direct support to selected charities by participating in service projects and fundraisers. In 2013, the Rotary Club of the Triad and area volunteers packed 16,000 meals for "Stop Hunger Now."
Since 1998, Stop Hunger Now has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families and countries all over the world to fulfill its commitment to end hunger. The meal-packaging program began in 2005 and has perfected the assembly process over time that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. With each meal costing only 25 cents, proceeds of the Rotary Club of the Triad's 5K and Fun Run will stretch far to provide meals to many individuals in need.
"Prophecy® is honored to sponsor the Rotary Club of the Triad's 5k and Fun Run event benefiting Stop Hunger Now," said Eric Gonzalez, President of Prophecy Healthcare, Inc. "Their commitment to end the suffering and hunger of individuals in other countries, where no government or philanthropic support exists, provides our company with an avenue to make a difference in the health and wellbeing of thousands from here at home."
As we near World Hunger Day (May 28, 2014) we are reminded of the staggering number of individuals battling starvation on a daily basis. The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2013, published by The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, estimated that one in eight people in the world were suffering from chronic hunger, not enough food to lead active and healthy lives. The United Nations estimates that 21,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes; the majority of victims are children before they reach their fifth birthday. The room for improvement in these statistics is indisputable. Through the combined efforts of organizations like the Rotary Club of the Triad and Stop Hunger Now, positive progress in reducing those inflicted with the pains of hunger is promising.
