A fundraiser for the Food Shelf on Saturday, September 29, 2018
A ONE BLOCK run organized by Gloria Carpenter to benefit the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 11 am on Bale Eagle Ave (between 3rd and 2nd street) in White Bear Lake.
It's time to start training for the 7th annual Gloria's Shortest Marathon. Your participation will give you the privilege to impress your friends, take it off your bucket list, all while helping to provide healthy groceries to a neighbor struggling to put food on the table. In the past five years, Gloria's Shortest Marathon has raised over $50,000 for the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf!
Your $35 tax deductible donation includes a carbo load of two White Castles courtesy of Mueller Mortuary at the start of the race, a bottle of water half way down the block (to avoid dehydration- of course!), AND in celebration of completing Gloria's Shortest Marathon, Caribou Coffee, Grandma's Bakery doughnut holes, and ice cream courtesy of Gary LaRue at the finish line.
The first 300 participants to register will be guaranteed an "I FINISHED THE FOOD SHELF MARATHON" t-shirt.
Join us the evening before (9/28) at the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf between 4-6 pm for a fun T-Shirt Pick Up Party. Festivities will include an opportunity to pick up your t-shirt in advance, catered goodies, a TOUR of the Food Shelf, and much, much more!
The food shelf is located at 1884 Whitaker Street in White Bear Lake, 55110.
Thank you to our T-Shirt Sponsors: Abbott Paint, Donatelli's, Kim Bennett American Family Insurance, Mueller Mortuary, and the WBL-VFW
