The Stuffed Strut 5K on Thanksgiving morning benefits HOPE and the Open Door Cafe, the first donate-what-you-can restaurant in Southwest Virginia. In our first ten months, over 18,000 meals have been served, with 7,000+ individuals receiving a subsidized, healthy, locally-sourced meal; 57% of our customers/donors support 43% who are food insecure; and the average per plate donation since opening is $5.75.
Event details and schedule
The 2019 8th annual Stuffed Strut 5k begins at 8 am on Thanksgiving morning in downtown Wytheville, at the new Open Door Cafe. The route is a relatively flat paved course around downtown Wytheville. It has been chilly in some years, so please dress accordingly.
Parking is available at the Cafe, next door at the HOPE Ministry Center, and across Main Street in a church parking lot. On-site registration opens at 6:45 am. We will serve warm refreshments immediately after the run's conclusion, in time to get everyone home for a big Thanksgiving lunch.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in several age categories will receive tokens for meals at the Open Door Cafe.
