The Illinois Food Run Challenges 30, 60, 90, 120 and (NEW) 180 Miles
6 week challenge - WAVE TWO Starts August 22nd
The Food Run challenge puts you in control of you! Designed to motivate you to move more, each challenge also provides you an opportunity to help feed those facing serious food insecurity in our community right now.
You Can Join The Challenge Anytime!
You can join a challenge anytime before its 6-week completion date, and you can also back date your miles as far as the start date at any time. We will also periodically launch additional “Waves” for each challenge, which will give you a new target completion date each time.
THIS IS A SIX-WEEK CHALLENGE
You can set your goal to move as few as five miles per week or challenge yourself to cover as many as 40 miles per week. As you cover your miles, our virtual challenge website totals up the distance you enter and tracks your progress for you.
These challenges are simple:
1. Do what you want to do, when you want to do it, from wherever you are (run, walk, bike, swim, whatever!).
2. Connect and track your progress on our race page and share with your fellow participants on our facebook groups.
3. Get your limited edition Illinois Food Run Challenge T-Shirt and car magnet medal!
LET’S MAKE A $1,000,000 IMPACT!
ALL CHALLENGERS SUPPORT LOCAL FOOD BANKS AND HUNGER RELIEF PROGRAMS
100% of All Donations support local food banks and hunger relief programs, to directly help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19, food insecurity is expected to more than double worldwide. Our goal is to raise One Million Dollars to support local hunger relief programs throughout North America. Each individual challenge supports regional food banks or hunger relief programs, all of which are listed on the challenge websites.
We have already raised over $9,500 and our UPDATED goal is to raise $20,000 in the Illinois to support local programs, including Feeding Illinois and the Beautiful Together.: Feeding Foster Youth program.
