Thank you to Legacy Church for coordinating a Hunger Run event!  This took place Saturday April 2 in the morning where members from Legacy Church and the community gathered to run a 5K and/or family fun run to raise money for the Round Rock location. 

Hunger Run: Thank You! | Mission U-Too

Both race options benefited Mission U-Too to help feed people Physically and Spiritually in the community of Round Rock where we give away free meals every Saturday. 100% of the proceeds raised went to Mission U-Too Round Rock.

We appreciate your support, hard work and talent in making this event a success. And THANK YOU to the runners who ran to fight for hunger. 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who made it out to our Feed the Need Event this past weekend! This year’s event was a tremendous success, even despite the crazy weather. Thanks to all of our supporters and volunteers, like you, your generosity blew us away, and we feel so blessed.

We wanted to share a few photo highlights from our night. There were so many great things about the evening … the Southside BBQ, mechanical bull ride, great music by the James Soto band … that it is hard to pick a favorite.
