Join us for the 9th Annual Harvest Moon VIRTUAL Run. As the health and safety of staff, volunteers and runners is our top priority, we’ve shifted to a virtual race to adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines. Because of this, the race will be a 5k only this year.
- $35 Virtual 5k race without shirt pickup: All race shirts will be mailed on November 9, 2020 to the address provided during registration.
- $25 Virtual 5k race with shirt pickup: Runners who pick up their race shirts at Varian Orchards on November 6, 2020 between 5pm-7pm will receive a discount. Social distancing measures will be in place and masks are encouraged. Varian Orchards is located at 6344 Orchard View Drive SE in East Canton.
- Support hunger relief with a financial contribution: Forgo the shirt and make a financial gift – donations at any level are always appreciated.
All participants who register by November 1, 2020 will receive a long-sleeve race shirt. Race times can be entered on or before November 8, 2020. Please share your pictures on Facebook and tag the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank so we can see you in action! Questions regarding the event can be directed to Faith Barbato at 330.493.0800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Support Makes a Significant Impact
Though Northeast Ohioans are headed back to work, Feeding America estimates a 42 percent increase in the number of people facing food insecurity due to COVID-19. We expect the aftermath of the coronavirus to negatively impact families for the rest of the year. We remain steadfast in our commitment to support these families during this difficult time. All proceeds from the 9th Annual Harvest Moon Run will benefit Community Harvest, the prepared and perishable food rescue program of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, to provide wholesome, nourishing meals for individuals in need in our local community. Thank you for helping feed people and fight hunger.
