This February I am participating in the Seventh Annual Quack Attack on Poverty 5k benefiting United Against Poverty. During the race I will be making my way through a 3.1 mile course featuring bubble, squirt gun and quack zones…all while wearing an inflatable duck-shaped pool float around my waist! I’m really looking forward to being part of this event and making a meaningful impact in this community.
This race benefits United Against Poverty Orlando, a nonprofit that helps lift working poor and low income families to self-sufficiency. UP Orlando is not a traditional food bank or soup kitchen. Their programs focus on teaching empowerment, rather than entitlement, to help our struggling neighbors break free from the cycle of poverty. Their campus located at 150 W. Michigan Street and serves an average of 525 families each day.
I hope you will join me in helping UP Orlando lead community-driven programs that produce deep and lasting change.
