Fleet Feet Sports Hosts ‘Run Your Can Off’ Relay Race
On Saturday, April 16, 2016, Fleet Feet Sports in the East Village hosted the first-ever “Run Your Can Off” relay race and food drive. The race began at the Fleet Feet Sports location at 521 E Locust in the East Village. From there, runners ran down E 6th 1.5 miles to B&B Grocery & Deli.
Runners then purchased food items to donate to the Red Barrel back at Fleet Feet. Runners earned time off their total run for each food item they brought back with them.
The event brought in 165 food items to the DMARC Food Pantry Network, plus some personal items and a cash donation. The winners of the race each received a free pair of running shoes that were donated by Brooks.
DMARC would like to thank Fleet Feet Sports in the East Village, Brooks Running, B&B Grocery & Deli, and all who participated in the “Run Your Can Off” relay race.
