Crush Hunger Saturday will be on October 13, 2012 in Elwood Indiana. There will be chili eating contest, 5K Run/Walk, Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. Of course we will have the Chili Cook-Off as well.

5K Run to Crush HungerElwood, Indiana – Red Gold has combined several events into the first ever “Crush Hunger Saturday”!  The second Saturday of October has been the Red Gold “Chili Cook-Off” for the past 26 years…what could possibly make this day even better?   “We decided to spice up our event and add some new elements that we hope will bring more people to the events and to Elwood,” said Colt Reichart, Red Gold’s Manager of New Media Communications.  “We moved our Indianapolis Colt’s Blue Friday event to the Chili Cook Off day, invited the Indiana Pacers, our Red Gold Pro Fisherman, DJ Kenny K, and then decided to throw in a 5K Run & Family Walk.  I think we have something on October 13th for everyone to enjoy!”

The 5K “Run to Crush Hunger” & Family Walk begins at 9am in Callaway Park. All proceeds from the race will go to Second Harvest Food Bank and the Morrisett Center Food Pantry to help win the fight against hunger in central Indiana. In its first year, this annual event boasts a fun course through the heart of historic downtown Elwood, electronic timing tag for quick accurate results, complimentary breakfast provided by Marsh, refreshments along the race route and great prizes for many different age groups. Registration for both the walk and the run includes a long-sleeved DRI-fit running shirt, free gift bag and free bowl of chili at the Red Gold Chili Cook-Off.  You must sign up for this event online.  Please visit www.RedGoldTomatoes.com.
