Pick your steps • Pick your  time • Help kids with hunger

Twenty-six percent of children in Michigan struggle with food insecurity. That amounts to over 300,000 hungry kids in our state.  Unsure of if or when they will get their next meal. 

You are invited to Walk, Run or Ride a 5K (3.1 miles) anytime between June 3 and June 6. And when you do, all funds raised will go to child hunger and food insecurity and relief in Michigan.   Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of your donation will go to the relief of child hunger in Michigan.

Donations of $35 and above will receive a T-Shirt in the mail. Children 10 and younger can get a T-Shirt with a $25 donation. Even your dog can get in on the relief effort!  So, gather the family and enjoy the outdoors! Registration must be received by Friday, April 30, 2021 for guaranteed T-Shirt deliveryRegistrations received after April 30 will receive a shirt as supplies last, or shipping time allows.

Registrants will be sent a race bib to pin for their personal “race day.” We'll all wear #26 as 26% of children in Michigan struggle with food insecurity.  We ask 5K participants to post a picture of their 5K effort on Social Media using #MIUMC5K. 

This is a great opportunity for youth groups and churches to gather together to raise money to help prevent food insecurity for Michigan children.
