Wanna really help those in need? Head to your pantry, cupboards, shelves, and favorite grocer to find canned foods & other non-perishable foods for our Rock the Run: Food Drive!


We're going to have a donation truck at the race to collect any food or other items you may want to donate.


And to add to the friendly competition we will have separate boxes for pirates & princesses to see which side brings more!


Food donations help to feed thousands of people in Hagerstown in several different ways:


  • Feeding the men in our 13-month residential Foundations Life Recovery program

  • Providing meals for our overnight guests in our homeless shelter

  • Serving community guests every day of the week, all year long at our Soup Line

  • Distributing food bags & boxes to individuals and families in need as well as providing grocery assistance to hundreds of people every quarter at our free Community Grocery Giveaway event.
