Description

Be a part of the second annual Holiday Lights Hunger 5K Run/1 Mile Walk presented by Rockline IndustriesHSA Bank, and Lake 98.1! Take steps against hunger through Making Spirits Bright holiday lights show one week prior to its public grand opening to car traffic. The course offers a sneak peek of Making Spirits Bright in Evergreen Park. Stop by "Santa's Workshop" tent for family-friendly activities next to the Quarryview Center and then join us for the after party and 5K run award ceremony down the road at 3 Sheeps Brewing taproom! For every pint of beer purchased that evening, 3 Sheeps will be donating $1 to Sheboygan County Food Bank.

All money raised by this event goes to Sheboygan County Food Bank In 2017, just over $11,000 was raised by this inaugural event!

Did you know that on any given day, 11,000 of our neighbors in Sheboygan County struggle with hunger? SCFB purchases, accepts and safely stores food locally at its 10,000-square foot warehouse. SCFB then work swiftly to deliver food to 14 partner agencies, at no cost, to ensure that 3,000 families don't go hungry. Learn more here.
