Please join us this year for the 8th 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 28, 2013 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, attracting 4,740 participants in 2012 and raising $96,000 for the homeless and poor of our community. This incredible sum helped to support the Sabbath House Shelter for women and children, and provide for more than 110,000 meals the Jesus Center served the less fortunate this year.
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.
