Featured Food & Fund Drive: CycleHealth
CycleHealth recently held its first ever Kidarod, a winter adventure race inspired by the famed Alaskan sled dog race. The Kidarod kids not only showed winter who’s boss by taking part in the race, but they also donated food to Second Harvest Heartland.
After learning that 1 in 6 Minnesota kids don’t have enough food to eat, the Kids Advisory Panel chose Second Harvest Heartland as the beneficiary of the Kidarod. Those who participated in the Kidarod were encouraged to take part in a 28-Day Challenge leading up to the event in which they were to collect food for those who don’t have enough to eat. Racers went above and beyond by collecting enough food to fill an entire 27-foot truck!
Altogether, over 2,648 pounds of food were collected, which is enough to provide over 2,225 meals for our hungry neighbors in need. Thank you Kidarod kids and families for making a difference!
“We chose Second Harvest Heartland because we saw the need to provide kids and families with food. My favorite thing about Second Harvest Heartland is the fact that they are constantly giving back to the community.”
