East Avenue Grocery Run

November 4, 2017

The East Ave Grocery Run is about fitness, family fun, and food for all! 100% of our net proceeds go to feed the hungry right here in Rochester. 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"

Now your friends and family can support the good work of the East Avenue Grocery Run! Start your own fundraising page in a few simple steps here. https://www.crowdrise.com/GroceryRun2017
