All the fun to be had is made even better for helping the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and all the wonderful work they do in our community. The Foodbank provides food and other essential items to 500 pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties. As the coronavirus has severely impacted local communities, the Foodbank has seen a significant increase in need as families struggle to make ends meet. Approximately 30 percent of families visiting pantries within the Foodbank’s network are visiting for the very first time.

The Foodbank continues to serve as a resource for the region because of the generosity of local supporters. This race will help ensure families in need will have access to nourishing food. When every $1 donated to the Foodbank helps provide the equivalent of 4 meals, you have the opportunity to make a significant impact.
