Shopping Cart Shuffle 5K

REGISTER HERE (ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AUGUST 10 - registrations will be accepted on site on Race Day)

There are more than 74,000 food insecure individuals in DuPage County, almost half of which do not qualify for government assistance.  Please join us in this chip-timed, family-friendly 5K run/walk to feed our hungry neighbors!  

Since 1999, Neighborhood Food Pantries has provided food security to our neighbors in need, as well as monetary assistance for housing, utilities, medical care/prescriptions, etc.  Funds raised from this 5K event will be used to help us reach our 2017 goal to provide over 2 million meals.
