Utah Human Race

Dawn of the Pecks

Hello my friends! Among the various things I strongly dislike, principle among them are; Giving /volunteering (did you know so-called volunteers don’t even get paid), asking people for stuff, large crowds and physical exercise. But in a likely misguided attempt to teach my daughter about doing good and why doing things we don’t like can be beneficial and make us blah blah blah…. I have decided to face all of these things in one fell swoop.
If you would like to aid me in failing at yet another 5K, consider joining my Championship Team Of Champions...It is obviously amazing because it is named after an episode (possibly the best episode) of Bob's Burgers. You can learn more about the cause your money will go at the bottom. Also, my company will pay the registration fee for up to 3 people to run with me. Even they know how hard it is for me to make friends so they will essentially pay you for your having to deal with me. If you are still on the fence I have come up with the various ways you can help that will take into account your various feelings of me, running and helping people.

Scenario 1. You like running and helping people but don't like me.
Congratulations on being here a great judge of character. Second, you can just run the race without me. They are expecting a pretty good turn out so you likely won’t even see me.

Scenario 2. You dislike running, but you like helping people and you are ambivalent of/do not hate me.
Just donate to my team. (if you dislike me you can just choose a different team or charity and donate to them)

Scenario 3. You don’t like running, me or helping people.
This whole thing is probably not for you.

Scenario 4. You like me, running and helping people.
JOIN MY TEAM AND RUN WITH ME!!!!!


423,000 Utahns, which equates to 1 in 7 Utahns, are at risk of missing a meal today. Even more alarming is that 1 in 5 Utah kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from.  

We are participating in Utah Food Bank’s 11th annual Utah Human Race on Thanksgiving Day because we feel that no child should have to go to bed hungry in Utah, especially on Thanksgiving. 

It’s family-friendly and costumes are even encouraged! People of all ages and abilities can participate in a variety of ways, so there’s no excuse not to! Join us in Draper on Thanksgiving morning (11/24) to make some room for that extra slice of pumpkin pie.

Please consider being a part of our team to help Utah Food Bank continue their important work of Fighting Hunger Statewide. If you can’t participate on the day of the event, you can always support our efforts by donating directly to our team. Thank you for your support!

Founded in 1904, Utah Food Bank has operated under various names but has always remained true to their mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide. 423,000 Utahns, which equates to 1 in 7 Utahns, are at risk of missing a meal today. Even more alarming is that 1 in 5 Utah kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Last year, they distributed over 37.5 million pounds of food, the equivalent of over 31 million meals, to people facing hunger across the state. Utah Food Bank can stretch each $1 donated into $7.35 worth of goods and services. To find out more about donating food, time or money, please visit http://www.utahfoodbank.org.
