Cornell University Athletics will be hosting “Miles for Meals”, a series of 1 mile races for runners of all levels in Barton Hall at Cornell University on January 28th. Including a 1 mile fun run/walk.
There is also a free NFL Combine type of 40-yard dash for kids (or for anyone who would like to do it).
Proceeds from this community event will be used to support the Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s BackPack Program™ which operates in every school district in Tompkins County. The BackPack Program™ provides children who have been identified as being at risk for experiencing hunger with a pack of nutritious, kid-friendly and easy to prepare food over weekends and breaks during the school year. There are 400 children in Tompkins County that benefit from the Backpack Program. The cost to assure that one child is taken care of for the school year is $120.
The races will be timed by Leone Timing & Results Services Inc. Medals presented to the top three male and female finishers for the following age groups: 6-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 plus.
