Volunteer & Participate!

CHIditarod is more than just costumes and shopping carts. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to eradicating hunger. Our annual micro-grant program has provided $592,350 in funds to Chicago-area nonprofits solving hunger challenges via education, innovation, and direct action. CHIditarod is a 100% volunteer driven event, and we need 300+ volunteers on race day to make it a success.

CHIditarod is Chicago’s original 100% volunteer-driven epic urban shopping cart race, charity food drive, costumed beauty pageant, talent show, fundraiser and chaos generator. It’s probably the world’s largest mobile food drive, benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the CHIditarod Foundation‘s quest to end hunger.
