CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Fox 8 Fox Trot is approaching fast.
This year’s 5K run and 1-mile walk will take place in Public Square on Sunday, Aug. 28.
Here are all the details:
Who does this year’s event benefit?
This year’s race will benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
For more than two years, Northeast Ohio and the world struggled to contain COVID-19. Many families were forced to make difficult decisions and say heartbreaking goodbyes, the pandemic affecting almost every aspect of life.
Every single week since March 2020, families have been filling Cleveland’s Muni Lot, accepting groceries to help ease the burden left behind by a lack of income and mounting bills. The organization at the enter of it all is the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
Just last year alone, the food bank and its partners served nearly 350,000 people across six counties in Northeast Ohio.
For almost 90,000 of those people, it was their first time reaching out for help from the food bank.
