East Avenue Grocery Run

The 15th annual East Avenue Grocery Run to benefit Rochester-area food pantries - November 2, 2024!

Join us in-person or virtually for the Grocery Run 10k run, 5k run/walk or the 1k run/walk to benefit local food pantries! Either way, you’ll feel great knowing your entire registration fee will go directly to Rochester-area organizations providing food, hope and dignity for hungry people. Thanks to our generous sponsors, donors and volunteers, the 2023 Grocery Run raised more than $66,500 for Rochester-area food pantries. We hope to do even better this year! Please join us and make a difference
