Hunger is Real. The Race is Virtual.
November 6 @ 8:00 am - November 8 @ 5:00 pm
Registration is open for the 11th annual East Avenue Grocery Run to raise money for hungry people in Rochester!
Since 2010, this fun event has raised more than $330,000 to benefit the Third Church Food Cupboard, Dining Room Ministry, Foodlink, and many other local hunger programs. This year, more than ever, local food pantries need our help. Our new slogan says it best: “Hunger is Real. The Race is Virtual.”
Choose any distance to run, bike, walk, swim or stroll and get it done anywhere, any time, November 6th – 8th.
On race weekend, you can download your race bib, and get out and enjoy your event wherever you would like! Then upload your time, download a finisher’s certificate and share photos to social media using hashtag #groceryrun.
All participants will receive a Grocery Run reusable tote with race refreshments, and if you registered before October 15, you’ll also get a special edition Virtual Grocery Run t-shirt.
You can pick up your shirt and tote at our drive-through pickup on Sunday, November 1, 10:00am-3:00pm in the Meigs St. parking lot.
Invite your friends and family to support this important cause by contributing to our online fundraiser. Or, make a donation by check to Third Presbyterian Church, with Grocery Run in the memo line.
