Selfless Elf 5k

Dec 19, 2020

Join us for our eighth annual Selfless Elf 5k on Saturday, December 19, 2020. This will be an exciting way to embrace the season and wrap up our Holiday Campaign! Dress in your favorite festive holiday-themed costumes or running gear and run or walk the 3.1-mile course, beginning and ending at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

For to the safety of all participants, this is a dog-free event. We appreciate your continued support of the Foodbank and the Selfless Elf 5k, and we’ve greatly enjoyed opening the event to our furry friends in the past! Unfortunately, due to an incident, we had to reconsider including dogs in the race. Though we realize not all dogs cause issues, the safety and well-being of the children and families in attendance are our top priority. Thank you for understanding.
