2019 - Thank you!
Feast and Feathers year EIGHT is officially 'in the books'. This year brought us some unique challenges that we were happy and determined to work around and we are so thankful to everyone for sticking with us and proud that we could overcome!
This race is important - not only to us as two sisters born and raised in Omaha - but to our community. What the Food Bank for the Heartland does- the food drives, the backpack programs, the pantries, this commitment, this impact, all to combat food insecurity here in our own city. Helping children, families, people - OTHER HUMANS - to be happy, successful, and focus on their future instead of their next meal.
Amy and I could not do this race without all the INCREDIBLE support of our families, friends, sponsors, volunteers, and participants.
Our sponsors help us cover race costs so your registration goes straight to the Food Bank. Our volunteers help keep us sane, maintain trails, move heavy things, help guide you on the course, park cars, run packet pickup and so much more. Our families rearrange Thanksgiving meals to accommodate us and our crazy idea so many years ago to put this race on. Our friends understand and support us when we miss their calls, forget to text back, etc.... our participants - ALL OF YOU! You show up! You believe in us and our mission of ending food insecurity in the heartland. ALL OF YOU - THANK YOU!
We are SO PROUD to tell you we were able to donate $20,500 and 1,200lbs of food. This brings our eight year total to $154,500 and over 13,700lbs of food!
We learned a lot in 2019 and are looking forward to year nine. Thank you just isn't enough!
