AMARILLO -- Pantexans are hitting the road today to help raise awareness about hunger in the Texas Panhandle in the second Pantex Run Against Hunger. Pantex also invited Highland Park and Panhandle schools to join them in a food drive to benefit the High Plains Food Bank.
Byron Logan and Randy Stokes, officers in the Safeguards & Security Division at Pantex, will again embark on a long-distance trek through parts of the Panhandle ending at the High Plains Food Banks food drive, which is being hosted at United Market Street.
This year, the pair wanted to expand the event to allow others to participate and to grow awareness about the need for food in the area. The pair has added a 40-mile bicycle ride from Pantex Plant to Panhandle High School and then Highland Park High School. They will begin the approximately 20-mile run to United Market Street at Highland Park Schools.
