The East Ave Grocery Run is about fitness, family fun, and food for all! It happens on the first Saturday in November, when about 1,200 runners and walkers help us raise money to support over 25 hunger programs right here in Rochester. 100% of our proceeds go to local organizations providing food, hope and dignity for hungry people. Whether you are racing to win, or winning by challenging yourself to finish, we have an event for you:
- A certified 5K run-walk
- A one-mile run and fitness walk
- A children’s fun run – a 100-yard “Boogie for Broccoli”
You can also form a fundraising team so that your friends and family can help support this good work. And our Grocery Run supporters also contribute more than 1500 pounds of food to Foodlink at our event!
