hile we all indulging in turkey and all the holiday side dishes, one local Las Vegas resident began an epic journey of running 26 marathons in 26 days to help raise awareness for those who go hungry every day in Las Vegas.

You can follow his progress on his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/26marathons26days. On December 23, 2013, Jayson will begin his 26th and final marathon at Eastside Cannery and finish at the Three Square Food Bank in North Las Vegas. The Cannery Hotel & Casino will host a celebration party to commemorate this awesome accomplishment on December 23rd inside The Club, where you will be able to meet Jayson, his sponsors and learn more about the Three Square Mission.

About Three Square While hunger is year-round, this time of year magnifies the issue of food insecurity. Three Square Food Bank and Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, released a study known as Map the Meal Gap, showing more than 340,000 people – or 16.2 percent of the population - in Southern Nevada is food insecure, meaning that they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.
