“Get Fit for the Food Bank” Challenge
Local athlete Ethan Hunger is doing his second annual Hunger vs. Hunger Fundraiser to raise awareness about hunger in our community & raise funds for the Bellingham Food Bank. His mission is to burn 10,000 calories* on July 16th by road biking 108 miles, running 26.2 miles, swimming 2.8 miles, mountain biking 5.1 miles and doing a 2 hour high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout! Last year he did 14.5 hours (870 minutes) of activity over the day to complete his quest and anticipates doing the same this year. *calories burned as measured on his fitness smart watch with HR chest strap and Ethan refueled with ample calories along the way!
Ethan has inspired us to come up with an event focused on challenging participants to rack up at least 870 minutes (equivalent to what Ethan did in his epic quest) of their favorite outdoor physical pursuits in July and do at least four different kinds of activity in the process.
We will donate $20 to Ethan’s Bellingham Food Bank Fundraiser for each person who completes our challenge (up to $1,000 in donations). And the Jerry H. Walton Foundation will double our donation!
Everyone who completes the challenge will also be eligible for a drawing for four $25 Fairhaven Runners & Walkers gift cards.
How do you record & report your results? Each day record the activity you did and minutes you exercised until you reach 870 minutes, then take a screenshot or photo of your list and email it to us at email@example.com by July 31st.
What kinds of activity counts? Walking, hiking, running, dancing, paddling, cycling, swimming, climbing, etc., etc. 🙂
