4th Annual Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk
November 20, 2021

COVID-19 Update and Message to our Community:

We hope you are doing well and staying safe. Thank you to all of those who have joined us in the past as participants, volunteers, sponsors, and key partners to help make our Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk a success.

In the wake of the current health crisis, the overall well-being of Sheboygan County residents remains a high priority for Sheboygan County Food Bank. We are continuing to take many precautions to best protect staff and volunteers during our daily operations. And while over three times as many more of our neighbors are counting on our help during this time, we are working closely with our 16 partner food pantries and other partner agencies to ensure each of our neighbors in need are being safely served healthy emergency food.

Contributing to the health of our community is important to us in all that we do. Because of this, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our 4th annual Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk that was scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2020 to 2021. Read our full press release here.

We know that for many of you the Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk has become a tradition to kick-off the holiday season and we thank you for understanding our decision that was made with our community’s best interest in mind. We look forward to again providing the opportunity for our community to support the children, families, and seniors who we serve and, in turn, enjoy a family-friendly event. Please look forward to joining us for our next Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk On Saturday, November 20, 2021. Thank you for your support and compassion.

Annual Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk

5K Run and 1 Mile Walk Benefiting Sheboygan County Food Bank

Be the first to see Making Spirits Bright’s annual drive-through holiday lights show in Evergreen Park at our Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk. The 5k run and 1 mile walk winds through the holiday lights show. Participate in this unique Sheboygan event supporting Sheboygan County Food Bank. Stop by “Santa’s Workshop” tent next to the Quarryview Center for family-friendly activities and refreshments and then join us for the after party and award ceremony down the road at 3 Sheeps Brewing! For every pint of beer purchased that evening, 3 Sheeps will donate $1.
