It’s not too late to donate your monetary support to the 2014 Foodie 5K sponsored by the Northern Illinois Food Bank! The community fun run/walk and post-run festival is just a little over a week away (April 12th), and we could not be more excited to donate our time and efforts to this awesome cause.
How would your monetary contributions help those in need? The Northern Illinois Food Bank works to help solve hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need. This is done through partnerships with other like-minded organizations, and meal donations from 2013 numbered over 42 million.
For every $1 donated, the Northern Illinois Food Bank provides $8 worth the groceries. Your donations are multiplied eight-fold, making even the smallest donation beyond relevant.
While participation for this Cantigny Park event has already sold out, you’re still able to contribute by donating to the cause or to a participating team—like us! Visit our Foodie 5K Fundraising page and feel free to make a donation to help hungry families and hungry kids in our area.
We’ve got a That’s Caring team running this year’s 5K, and we can’t wait to fill you in on all of the fun. Wish us luck!
