Join Kids’ Food Basket (KFB) on the most popular running day of the year as we officially host the 19th annual Gobble Wobble fun run and walk.

We invite friends, family, neighbors and even furry friends to once again run, walk or wobble to the mile finish line on Thanksgiving morning! 

Register by October 23rd for $30 and you will receive a custom Gobble Wobble t-shirt.  Registration after October 23rd are not guaranteed a t-shirt.

Registration fees after September 25th will increase to $35 and then on November 1st will increase to $40.

We also invite all kids 12 and under to participate in our Widdle Wobble! This event is open to all youth and is free of charge. We do ask that all participants sign up through the registration event page.   

All proceeds will go directly to Kids’ Food Basket. 

Kids’ Food Basket exists to increase access to healthy food for children and families. Our core belief is that food is a right, not a privilege. Because that is not yet a reality, we mobilize human and financial resources to break down barriers that cause food insecurity. Our services include our flagship Sack Supper program, community-driven farming, family food provision and educational programming. Collectively, we are working toward realizing a hunger-free West Michigan for all.

We look forward to running with you on Thanksgiving morning!
