Golden Boy Boxing: Vicente Escobedo Runs To Feed The Hungry

By Boxing Press November 19th, 2009 All Press Releases

For years, 2004 United States Olympian and current lightweight contender Vicente Escobedo has been fighting his way to the top of the boxing ranks, but on Thanksgiving morning, November 26, he begins a fight of a different sort as he captains Team Escobedo in the 10k "Run to Feed The Hungry" in Sacramento, California.

"This is a very important run for me because I think we need to help our communities and remember those who are less fortunate, especially around this time of year," said Escobedo, a native of Woodland, California.

"I know we all can get distracted at times with what's going on in our own lives, but when an opportunity like this comes up, it's the best feeling in the world to be able to give back and help our neighbors out. I'm going to be out there running with my team on Thanksgiving and I'd love to add some more members to our team before November 26."

"Run to Feed The Hungry" has been aiding the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services since 1994 and consists of a 10k run or 5k Run / Walk at California State University, Sacramento, beginning at 8:45am PT for the 10k run and 9:05 am PT for the 5k Run / Walk. In 2008, over 28,000 participants attended the event, raising $750,000.

"I urge all boxing fans to come out and support Team Escobedo in Sacramento as this is a great cause and one I plan on supporting every year. If you can't make it out I encourage everyone to visit Feed The Hungry's website or find a way to support a local charity during this holiday season," said Escobedo.
