Every Child Counts.

If you want to make us feel immediately warm with joy, let us hear the sound a child laughing. It’s powerful, and wonderful, and disarming, and perfect.

But if you want to see us overcome with sadness and grief, tell us of a child who is hungry. Few things feel more unjust, more inherently wrong, than a child who physically hurts because they don’t have enough to eat.

As Whovians, we care deeply just as the Doctor does for those who deserve nothing more than a happy life, free from worry or discomfort. When it comes to kids, that concern is tenfold. So if there’s something we can do that brings kids the comfort and happiness they deserve — helps them grow and flourish and learn and play and live — that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

Our next charity partner for the 2020 season is The Sheridan Story!

The Sheridan Story is dedicated to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships. They organize “backpack programs” that send high quality healthy foods home for students who need it most, but they are more than that: they are an ever-growing network of weekend food programs operating in over 245 schools and growing.

Our support of The Sheridan Story will help ensure that kids have three filling, nutritious meals a day, every day, throughout the school year…and over the entire calendar year.

To learn more about this exceptional organization and its programs, visit them online…and then come back tomorrow at 12:00pm Eastern, when we reveal the next virtual running event of the year.
