Food Truck Rally & Sunset 5K

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Run • Walk • Taste • Rock


What do you see when you look at the picture above?

  1. People from over 80 towns and 6 states enjoying curbside cuisine
  2. Race participants scoping out the competition
  3. A couple on their first date enjoying gelato under a shady tree
  4. All of the above (This is the correct answer, by the way.)

To support the new COD Fuel Pantry (the fund where all proceeds from this event are going), we are asking attendees to bring non-perishable, healthy food items to help stock the shelves of this new student-driven initiative, which is a sustenance resource for COD students to ensure they are not distracted from studies by hunger. There will be collection bins throughout the event.
