Run for Charity

The race aims to inspire healthy living and an active lifestyle across all ages and fitness levels. It also serves as a reflection of the Pay-Less Community Foundations passion for strengthening Guam’s community.

In 2016, the Kick the Fat 5k run/walk raised over $40,000, which was allocated towards 9 nonprofit organizations. It served as financial assistance for the following purposes:

  • Parent Empowering Parents: operational costs, equipment, and educational material
  • Harvest House: Construction supplies for the Harvest House Resource Center
  • Sanctuary Inc.: food, school supplies, clothing
  • Island Girl Power: expand its Health & Wellness Program and assist in a redevelopment of a recreational park.
