Summary (2017 and 2018)
The Holiday Lights Hunger Run/Walk is community event and a fundraiser for Sheboygan County Food Bank which welcomed 2,114 participants and raised nearly $40,000 after expenses in its first two years thanks to the generous support of our community.
In 2018, the 5K run and 1-mile walk course offered a “sneak peek” of Making Spirits Bright drive-through holiday lights show in Evergreen Park prior to its opening to the public. People enjoyed "Santa's Workshop" tent for family-friendly activities and refreshments, a professional race chip-timing and reporting service, more music speakers throughout the course, a Deer Creek Cheese tasting and beer pairing at 3 Sheeps Brewing for the after party and award ceremony, and much more.
