2021 CHIditarod Season Recap
We really missed dressing up and gathering to race carts this year, but our Film Challenge videos gave us a sweet taste of the Spirit of CHIditarod.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository normally comes to the start of the race to collect food donations, this year we brought the party to GCFD.

Fundraising for CHIditarod Foundation
Food insecurity is up 24% in Chicago since the start of the pandemic, with Black and Latino households especially those with children disproportionately affected. 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.
