Give n’ Gobble 5k Walk/Run, 10k Run & Community Food Drive

Run for Food and Help Those in Need!

Keep the Tradition Going! 17 Years!

Since 2007, walkers and runners of all ages have gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving morning together. Our goal has always been simple, connect with family, friends, and neighbors while burning a few calories…and giving back. That simple goal has raised nearly $500,000 and 80,000 lbs. of food donations for local families in need. This fun and heart-warming event has become a Thanksgiving holiday tradition, drawing over 2,500 participants each year.

We are incredibly grateful to be able to continue this tradition of giving back and staying active as a community!  

FREE T-shirts to registered participants who donate a bag of non-perishable food (while supplies and sizes last).

Who Does This Event Support?

The funds and food donations from the annual Give n’ Gobble go to Helping Hands Food Bank, which is affiliated with the Oregon Food Bank. To date, we have donated nearly $500,000 and over 80,000 lbs of food.  These funds help cover Helping Hands’ annual expenses, enabling them to provide hundreds of needy families with not only canned food and other nonperishable items, but also dairy products, and fresh fruits and vegetables. The Give n’ Gobble also funds the Backpack Meals for Kids program that has provided over 100,000 meals for at risk children.
