By participating in the DE-FEET HUNGER Virtual 5K you will be partnering with Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service to provide food and other essential basics to the families who turn to us in crisis. Each year the Care Service assists nearly 2,000 households in St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren Counties and provides over 6,800 distributions through our Food Pantry Program. The economic impact of the current pandemic has resulted in even greater number of people reaching out for help. Proceeds from registrations and donations to DE-FEET HUNGER Virtual 5K will help meet these needs in the coming weeks and months.
This is the perfect opportunity to spend a little more time in the outdoors. Staying healthy and active is more important than ever. Go for a run. Enjoy a leisurely hike. Take your dog for a walk. Spend some time by yourself or with your family while enjoying some fresh air and make a difference in someone’s life.
Encourage your friends to participate. We’re all in this together.
