Cranksgiving 2011

The date for the 4th annual Champaign-Urbana Cranksgiving has been set:
November 13th 2011

What - Cranksgiving is a food drive where food is collected by riding around Champaign/Urbana/Savoy and purchasing food at local grocery stores. Riders earn prizes by completing the ride is the fast time, with the most food. However, we usually have prizes for almost everyone.

Where - Meet at the Bike Project is Urbana (202 S. Braodway Avenue). Registration starts at 12 and the ride starts at 1.

Bring - Bring a bike, a bag to carry your collected food, a lock for when you are in the stores, and at least $5 or however much you would like to spend on food to donate.

Who - All food donated will go to the Eastern Illinois Food Bank.

Other - After the ride there will be an afterparty and other bike games. Admission to the party is participation in the ride or 4 items of donated non-perishable food. Riders in the past have brought in as much as 100lbs of food(with a bike trailer).

Please tell all you friends, the ultimate goal is to collect food for the hungry. This is our 4th year running and each year we have surpassed the previous amount of food collected. Last year we set the bar high and collected over 1900lbs of food. Lets try and beat that this year!
