The Lederhosen 5K is returning this summer as a VIRTUAL race to help the Church of Peace in Rock Island keep their food pantry shelves stocked. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began shuttering businesses in the Quad Cities in mid-March and affecting Quad Citizens, the food pantry has seen a 40% increase in families coming to the food pantry.
When you register for the 1-mile, 5K, or 10K virtual race, you have until July 25, 2020, to complete your run/walk. You can even submit your results to see where you rank. For your $30 donation, you’ll receive a t-shirt and commemorative medal. Registration is open until July 11th.
You don’t have to dress up for your virtual run or walk, but if you do, be sure to share your best lederhosen or dirndl pictures on the Lederhosen Virtual Race’s Facebook page.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Church of Peace Food Pantry that served almost 2,000 families in 2019 and distributed over 90,000 pounds of food, and other community outreach efforts.
