Is doing a half marathon on your bucket list, but you’ve been too afraid to try?
Have you tried to run a half marathon on your own, only to crash before the finish?
Have you run many half marathons, yet your time or comfort goals are never met?

Join us on 2/12 @7pm for the KICK OFF info meeting/sign up for the 2nd annual FVFFH training program for the Fox Valley Half Marathon (9-16-18) at Dick Ponds in St. Charles. Learn how this training program will not only promote healing in our community through healthy meals, but help YOU reach your running goals!

Established in 2012 by area residents Susan Leigh and Mary Fremgen, Fox Valley Food for Health (FVFFH) is a network of adult and teen volunteers who lovingly prepare and deliver weekly nutritious meals to cancer victims and their families. “How did you know I needed your love, support and help to keep me alive!” (Maureen, former FVFFH recipient). To date, over 34,000 meals have been delivered to nearly 200 individuals, just like Maureen, in the tri-city area. The program runs completely on donations from the community and is free of charge to those it serves.
