Overview

Join us in-person or virtually at 9am CDT for the 10th annual Race to Feed Kids in support of Mary’s Meals, an international feeding charity that provides a daily meal to children in their place of education. This isn’t just your average run/walk. Every single race registration will feed one child at Mcheza school in Malawi, Africa for an ENTIRE school year, helping to end hunger and change their story.

Gather with us after the race for family-friendly activities!

Thank you for your generous support of Mary's Meals and the Race to Feed Kids in Des Moines, Iowa!
