Please join us this year for the 11th Annual Run for Food! This 5K run/walk will begin and end at the One Mile Recreation Area of Bidwell Park on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24, 2016 at 9am.

Run for Food began in 2006 when a group of Chico families and business saw the amazing impact the Jesus Center has by providing food and services to those in need in Chico. Knowing the Jesus Center is funded solely by community support, they came together to organize the Thanksgiving Day run/walk benefiting the Jesus Center.

Since its inception, the event has continued to grow. In 2015, over 5,200 participants, 80 businesses, and 200 volunteers came together to help raise funds for the Jesus Center and its exciting new programs. The Jesus Center provides two meals a day, six days a week, shelter for women and children, a resource center open to anyone seeking help to find housing, work, and a new start. In short, the Jesus Center offers hope.

We hope you, your friends and your family will spend this Thanksgiving morning working up an appetite, helping our community and enjoying the beauty of Bidwell Park.
