Four for the Fourth for the Food Bank. Whew! There's a lot of F's in that sentence. It's actually a pretty fun tongue twister. you're saying it out loud aren't you. Ha!

It was a pretty big blow to Missoula when the Missoula Marathon was cancelled because of COVID-19. It's pretty crazy to think that we would just now be gearing up for all the festivities to take place next weekend. Of course, just because the actual event was canceled doesn't mean you can't still earn your medal and t-shirt. There's still time to complete a virtual race.

Ok, lets get back to the Four for the Fourth for the Food Bank! With the 4th of July sneaking up on us, this is a great way to get outside and be active while helping the Missoula Food Bank. You commit to either run or walk four miles, and most of the money from your registration goes to help those in need.

Here's the official info from the Facebook event page:
