Running a 10K—just 6.2 miles—will feed 10 hungry people in Boston, thanks to Run 10 Feed 10.

Women’s Health started the race series in 2012, with the hope of using running to benefit the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table. So far, the program has provided roughly 4.5 million meals to people all over the country.

This year, the group wants that number to hit 5 million. To help, all you need to do is register online for the Boston 10K, which is sponsored by Marathon Sports and will take place September 24. (That gives you just longer than a month to train for race day.) Your registration fee of $35 will automatically supply 10 meals to Boston families, and you’ll receive some swag in return. If you want to go above and beyond, you can also donate or fundraise through Crowdrise.

There are tons of road races in our area, many of which support good causes. But if you’re looking for a tangible, immediate way to affect change in Boston, this seems like a pretty good bet.

Race will be 9/24 at 9 a.m. Starts at Marathon Sports, 671 Boylston St., Boston. Register at
