Mindful Mile & Fight Hunger 5k

Looking for a way to get in shape while raising money for a good cause? Join us on May 4, 2019 for the 5th Annual Mindful Mile & Fight Hunger 5k, sponsored by Sodexo. All proceeds will be donated to the UAlbany Campus Pantry slated to open in late spring of 2019.

Both obesity and hunger are serious public health problems. While it may seem counter-intuitive, hunger and obesity can coexist in the same individual, family, or community. At Sodexo, with 125,000 employees serving millions every day, we have an opportunity to fuel a movement for a change. Join us and the University of Albany as we come together to make a positive difference in our community.
