On October 25th of 2020 we held our 3rd Annual Causeway 5K at Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin. We had over 100 registered runners/ walkers and 30 Sponsors! The Causeway 5K was organized by Causeway employees: Chad Scanlon (Assistant Inventory Manager and overall 5K Winner), Kaitlyn Strohmeier (Digital Marketing Assistant) and Joe Stroffolino (Director of Advertising and Marketing).
Last year we were able to raise $13,670 for Fulfill! (Formerly known as The Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties). Causeway President, Dave Wintrode, kindly matched that amount bringing the grand total to $27,340! Every dollar donated to Fulfill provides three meals to those in need. This means we were able to provide our neighbors with 82,020 meals! This really put a dent in addressing the food insecurity issue right here in our community!
Our very first Causeway 5K was held back in October of 2018, which raised $3,000. Dave Wintrode kindly matched that amount bringing the grand total to $6,000 for Fulfill. We all had a great time running and raising money for our friends at Fulfill that we decided to host our Second Annual Causeway 5K in October of 2019. We had set a goal to beat the funds raised in 2018 and did just that! We were able to raise $5,743.50 and once again, Dave Wintrode kindly matched that amount, bringing the grand total to $11,487!
Fulfill’s mission is to alleviate hunger and build food security in Monmouth & Ocean Counties and to make sure that all people at all times have access to enough nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy life. Fulfill has a network of 289 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, day programs, group homes, and more that they work closely with to feed our neighbors in need.
