     Welcome to our 5th Annual Hungry Hearts 2017 5k Fun Run for Refugees With Scavenger Hunt and Harvest Festival! The event will take place in the scenic South Coast Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes, Ca.  This year we will be adding everything we had last year and more! Our race is geared towards having fun as you support the Refugees! In addition to your T-shirt, again you will get a knitted hat made by the refugees and a squirt gun with various areas in the park to refill. There will be a scavenger hunt on the first lap for those who don’t want to do all laps with prizes awarded for the top 10 Scavengers! There will be a clock for personal timing of your run. We will time the first 25 runners and the top 3 men and women will get medals. Attendees can do 1 lap, 2 laps or 3 laps. Lots of great prizes will be available by opportunity drawing too. Each runner will receive one opportunity ticket and can purchase more at the race. After the race is our Harvest Festival which includes a taco lady with free breakfast taco’s (beef, chicken or scrambled egg), a DJ and music, Balloon specialties for the kids, face painting, games, hippity hops and races, hula hoops, arts and crafts, reptile/animal farm, massages, harvest festival and sponsor booths, knitting items for sale, etc. All proceeds from this event go to Syrian Refugee relief.  Don’t miss out on a great day!
