Let's win this food fight!
Join Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service to DE-FEET HUNGER!
Here is your chance to get outside and enjoy the great spring weather while helping care for the most vulnerable in our community.
What is a virtual race? Register for the de-Feet Hunger Virtual 5K and run or walk in your favorite park, trail, or neighborhood any time between May 15th and May 29th. Where and how you complete your race is up to you. Track your time and enter them on the event website to see how your results compare. Everyone who registers will receive a commemorative t-shirt and swag bag. Dogs who register will receive a commemorative dog tag! Participants will also be entered into our attendance prize drawing.
Who can participate? The de-Feet Hunger Virtual 5K is open to everyone and includes the option to enter your favorite dog or other furry friend into their own special de-Feet Hunger Virtual 5K. Adult registration is $25, Child (13 and under) is $15, and Furry Friends join in the fun for only $10.
Have some extra fun with our four Weekly Challenges. Each week, for four weeks, beginning April 18th we will send out a weekly challenge. These are special, fun activities that will give you the chance to learn more about obstacles the most vulnerable in our community encounter or ways you can help them. Completing the weekly challenge earns you an entry into our weekly challenge prize drawing. These challenges are free but you must register for them during the registration process.
Multiply the fun. Invite friends and family to join in and create your own group. There will be special recognition for the group with the best themed costumes. You can all get together to take a photo OR keep your social distancing going and send in photos of everyone participating together but alone.
Become a fundraiser. Make a bigger impact and transform more lives when you become an individual or group fundraiser! Set your own goal then ask for donations or host your own fundraising activity to meet it.
Earn a referral gift. Share the referral code included in your welcome email and earn a special referral gift when five or more people register using your code.
Get your swag! Adult/Child registrations receive a commemorative "let's win this food fight" t-shirt. Dog participants receive a commemorative dog tag.
By participating in the de-Feet Hunger Virtual 5K you will be partnering with Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service to provide food and other essential basics to the families who turn to us in crisis. Each year the Care Service assists nearly 2,000 households in St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren Counties and provides over 6,800 distributions through our Food Pantry Program. The economic impact of the pandemic has resulted in new groups of people turning to the Care Service for help who have never needed help before. Proceeds from registration and donations to de-Feet Hunger Virtual 5K will help meet these needs.
This is the perfect opportunity to spend a little more time outdoors. Go for a run. Enjoy a leisurely hike. Take your dog for a walk. Spend some time enjoying fresh air and making a difference in someone's life.
Special thank you to our 2021 Food Pantry Sponsor NATIONAL CART COMPANY.
