KICK THE CAN 5K IS CANCELLED - Due to circumstances out of our control, the Kick the Can 5K, scheduled for Saturday, April 18th is being cancelled. Due to heavy saturation of 5K's and fun runs in the Cedar Valley there are currently not enough athletes registered to participate in this race to make it successful. We are 2 weeks away from the race and we have less than 20 people participating, so unfortunately we have to pull the race. Although disappointed we have to cancel, we feel that it would be unfair to our sponsors, volunteers and athletes to hold a race with less than 50 people, as it would not be a good use of sponsorship dollars or be a competitive event for the participants. We have decided this run will not be on the calendar of events in the future due to lack of participation, so our focus will continue to be on our existing events such as Combat Hunger, Empty Bowls, Letter Carrier Food Drive, Student Food Drive and Gift Wrap. Those who are currently registered and our sponsors will be contacted by someone from the Northeast Iowa Food Bank staff this week to determine if they would like a refund or to just make a donation. Thank you for your understanding and it is always most important for us to make decisions which are best for everyone involved. As always, thank you for your continued support of the Northeast Iowa Food Bank! Please feel free to call or email Sunni Kegebein or Niki Litzel at 319-235-0507 with any questions or concerns.
The Northeast Iowa Food Bank is looking for volunteers to fill a couple of Combat Hunger spots tonight from 4pm-8pm (Shifts can be split into 2 hour shifts) at the Waverly Fareway and Wavery Hyvee. Please contact Patrick Bird at 319-235-0507 if you can help out and to get more information! Thank You!
Just a reminder that the Kick the Can 5K which was scheduled for this weekend, August 23rd has now been rescheduled for Saturday, April 18th, 2015. Thank you to everyone who either registered or sponsored for your support! We will see you in April!
On behalf of the Northeast Iowa Food Bank, I would like to first thank you all for your interest and those who have registered in the 2014 Kick the Can 5K. Unfortunately, due to the low number of registrations, we have decided to reschedule the race to the spring (April). This race was extremely successful last April and we feel that it would be unfair to our sponsors and our athletes to move forward with this race knowing it will not be equivalent or better than last year. As participants, you have the option to have your money returned to you or we will hold it for you until April’s race. Please contact Sunni Kegebein at either email@example.com or 319-235-0507 for additional information. We appreciate your support and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, however we look forward to seeing you in the spring for an awesome race!
