Winners announced on April 30th!
walk, run, & hike to build food security in hancock county
Whether you are a seasoned runner, walker, or hiker, or you are looking to start moving more this spring, the Hancock County Food Drive invites you to sign up for the Miles for Meals challenge. Register and fundraise for every mile you walk, run, or hike between
Saturday April 16, 2022 and Sunday April 24, 2022.
We encourage participants to create a fundraiser when they sign up, which can be easily shared with family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Participants can also form teams by joining a friend's fundraiser after they sign up.
100% of the funds raised will go toward helping the Food Drive raise $40,000 (120,000 meals!) this April. Lace up those running shoes and hiking boots and join us in building food security in Hancock County!
HOW IT WORKS
You will receive a confirmation email from Run Sign Up after you register. If you decide to create a fundraiser (this is an optional but encouraged feature!), Run Sign Up will send you a link to your fundraising page, which you can personalize and share with others. You also have the option of making a donation when you sign up. If you wish to surpass the donation and fundraising options, just click "continue" at the bottom of the page.
Start logging your miles on Saturday, April 16th!
Update your Run Sign Up account with every intentional mile (not just the total number of steps you take during the day) that you complete between 4/16/22 - 4/24/22, and share your success with your sponsors. You can also share your progress on social media :)
Your results (# of miles and fundraising total) will be reviewed after the event closes (11:59PM 4/24/22). Winners will be announced on April 30th!
