About The Event
Pandemic-Style

Host George Basil

Date Sunday December 6th, 2020

Time 9am-2pm

How It Works Blake will run a marathon (26.2 miles) on the street/sidewalk, along a pre-determined route from East Side to West Side.

We will have organized checkpoints along the route, in which small groups of 3-5 runners will join Blake for his run to the next checkpoint. The groups will ideally be made up of those already part of each other’s “pods” and will be socially distanced throughout the run.

A pickup truck with a treadmill on the back will also travel along the route, for potential short treadmill runs while the vehicle is not in motion at certain checkpoints.

If you’d like to sign up to run or volunteer, please email Bree Doehring at bree@treadmillmarathon.com

About The Cause

About:
Since 1973, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has distributed more than 1.2 billion pounds of food. The Food Bank collects food from hundreds of resources. In a typical month before the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Food Bank provided food to 300,000 adults, seniors and children through our partner agency network and Food Bank direct distribution programs. The number of people served has increased markedly and is now estimated to be at more than 900,000 people served over the course of a month. Food distribution has increased by 125% compared to the pre-pandemic period. 110 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 90 million meals, have been distributed since the crisis started in March, including 1.3 million emergency food boxes distributed to families and individuals (3.9 million individuals served in total) through partner agencies and direct distributions.
