On October 30, 2011, K-State held its first ever meal packaging event through Numana, Inc. called SWIPE Out Hunger. In a sort-of competition with other college campuses across Kansas to package the most meals during the month of October, K-State and the community of Manhattan packaged 70,000 rice, bean, and nutrient-enriched meals while other colleges typically produced 20,000. Together, we are all working to make SWIPE a lasting tradition here at Kansas State University.
This year, our event will be held October 28th, and it is our goal to ship off 100,000 meals to a place in the world with the most immediate need. For this event to be a success like last year, we need to fundraise $28,000. To do this, we need the help of businesses and organizations throughout K-State and the Manhattan community, including you!
As a fundraiser, we will host a 5K run and walk on the K-State Campus on September 22, 2012.
The 5K run will begin at 8:00AM at the tentative location of in front of K-State Gardens.
The 5K walk will begin at 9:30AM also at the tentative location of the front of K-State Gardens.
You can early register for our 5K for $30 until September 8. You will get a complimentary t-shirt and an accurate timing for your run or walk. Between September 8 and 22, the ticket price will be $45.
