New in 2022...
What a crazy couple of years 2020 & 2021 were! As many of our participants know, the Run to Crush Hunger went completely virtual over the last two years to help combat the spread of COVID-19. While we understand that we are not completely out of the woods, we recognize how eager our communities are to spend time with friends and family and enjoy social events again. That is why we are thrilled to announce that Crush Hunger Saturday will take place IN-PERSON this October in Downtown Elwood!
Historically speaking, the Run to Crush Hunger was always directly followed by the Chili Cook-Off. Although the races will still take place as normal, we have decided to trial a fun, new event in place of the Chili Cook-Off. We are excited to introduce the new FALL FESTIVAL! The Fall Festival will take place in lieu of the Chili Cook-Off and will feature great food, drinks, music, and family fun activities for all ages to enjoy! We know that the Chili Cook-Off has been a long-standing and adored event by so many members of our community, and we hope to bring this event back in the future. However for time being, our top priority is to ensure we can enjoy social events again while also keeping our community safe and healthy.
Check out all of the new and exciting things to expect at this year's Fall Festival below!
