2nd Annual El Paso Veteran Food Pantry Dash 5K Run and Walk
Sponsored by: BlackBrush Energy, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Dell Fort Bliss Ambassador Team, Great Lakes Computers, Western Tech College, GC Services, Rebuilding El Paso, EPVRA (El Paso Veterans & Riders Association)
Help us fill the shelves of the El Paso Veteran Food Pantry by participating in this great event! Last year we raised over $2,800 for the VNP (501c, nonprofit charity who runs the Veteran Food Pantry). Packet pickup, day of race registration, pre-race vendors, and informational booths will open at 6:45am on 11 June 2016. This year we’ll also have a higher quality race teeshirt. Sign up before 31 March 2016 to guarantee teeshirt and size!
VNP is currently providing meals for over 300 veterans and their dependents monthly. All funds received by the VNP stay locally and provides for our El Paso Veterans! This event is their largest fund raising event.
Bib Pickup: 10 June 2016 at the VNP 4317 Dyer Street, El Paso Texas 79930 from 11am to 7pm. (VNP has two new signs making the location even easier to find!)
Participants can also pickup their bibs at the event starting at 6:45am
Donations: Can goods and clothing items in good conditions can be donated during both packet pickup and day of the event. Additionally donations can be made at any time during the race registration period here at RunSignUp.com. Just select the donation tab!
VNP will be conducting a bucket drop during the packet pickup and the day off the race. The funds raised during the bucket drop will go directly to the El Paso Veteran Food Pantry. The El Paso Veteran Food Pantry has established a relationship with local vendors. These relationships enable them to purchase a pound of food for .15cents. $1 = 6 pounds of food $2 = 13 pounds of food $5 = 33 pounds of food $10 = 66 pounds of food
The El Paso Food Pantry will also be accepting can food donations at their location during the packet pick up!
A $1 dollar raffle will also take place during the race. All proceeds go directly to The Veteran Food Pantry. Tickets will be on sale at the event. The following items are up for raffle:
