2022 Blockditarod Recap
The ongoing pandemic forced us off course again. Our solution for 2022: Blockditarod!
Even though we took another year off from racing, we did not slow down. With half the teams normally on board, we came pretty close to last year’s fundraising record by collecting $107,005 for CHIditarod Foundation Community Grants, and 12,404 pounds of food were donated to the Greater Chicagoland Food Depository!
Fundraising for CHIditarod Foundation
The Greater Chicago Food Depository — which is a major resource for many of the organizations supported by the Chiditarod Foundation — expects to spend more than double the amount of money on food purchasing in fiscal 2022 as they did in 2021. A clear sign that the effects of the pandemic on hunger and food insecurity are not getting better. The CHIditarod Foundation seeks to alleviate hunger and solve the root causes of hunger through creativity, engagement and direct action.
This event will raise funds safely and remotely, and help provide grants to local, small 501(c)(3) organizations that share our hunger-fighting mission.
2022 Fundraising Total$107,511 / 125,000
