World Runners - What We Are About

World Runners is unique among nonprofit institutions. The organization is interested in the fitness of both its members and its beneficiaries. However, there is a difference in emphasis on the type of fitness between the two groups. Physical fitness is the main interest for the member and financial fitness for the beneficiaries.

World Runners was founded in 1977 by a group of runners with a mission to make a difference in the world. The difference to make? To end the existence of persistent hunger and poverty in the world.

Race to End World Hunger

World Runners is reorganizing and will not be sponsoring the Run to End World Hunger on New Year's Day 2016 in Mountain View or the Sunnyvale race in October. Since 2007, the Run to End World Hunger has raised over $100,000 for the charitable programs of World Runners, supporting women's education and microcredit in Africa. The need persists, a contirbution to the cause would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support.
