Announcing the Run for Hunger FUN RUN!!

Register online HERE!

The Run for Hunger team felt it necessary to cancel the RACE this year (see note below) but wanted to continue to support our local food pantries.  We thought what better way to do that than have a FUN RUN.  A FUN RUN means of course that fun will be had by allJ  Also it means a few changes to our usual race format, but what won’t be changing is that it will still be held on Sunday July 19, 2015 at 8am.  What will be changing is the location. The FUN RUN will be held on the Prairie Path on an out and back course beginning and ending right near Olympia Chiropractic (see the Maps and Directions page).  It will be a more relaxed event with a clock provided but no official time kept.  An unofficial 5k course will be marked for your convenience but you may choose to run as much or little as you like.  You can still register on line or on race day at Olympia Chiropractic.  We hope to see you there supporting our local food pantries!!

Run for Hunger Canceled This Summer
Be back in 2016!

      The Run for Hunger Team has decided it best to cancel the race this year due to circumstances beyond our control.  We have received notice from York Township that all the streets of Yorkfield, which comprise 90% of the race course, will be under construction this summer.  New curbs & gutters will be installed and the pavement resurfaced on every street.  Because the repairs will create potential safety hazards to participants the Team felt they had no other choice than to cancel the run.  On the positive side, the runners will have a great course to run on in 2016!

     This will also be a loss for several local food pantries, which benefit from the proceeds of the run.  So, if you are able, please donate to the below local food pantry this year to help offset their loss.
1)    Elmhurst/Yorkfield Food Pantry - Elmhurst
2)    Disciples Food Pantry – Villa Park
