We raised $61,000 to support scholarships through the 2018 Fun Run + Fitness event!

This year Feeding Tomorrow held the 2018 Fun Run + Fitness fundraiser, the foundation’s largest fundraiser which supports student scholarships for the best and brightest pursuing careers in the science of food! Participants could attend virtually by doing their own fitness activity or could enjoy Yoga and an unsupported 5k run/1-mile walk at IFT18 in Chicago, IL.

Congratulations to the three 2018 Fun Run + Fitness Champions, who each had 20 or more members: The Hill Sprinters from Alabama A&M University, Ingredion, and IFT Staff.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, supporters, and participants for making the 2018 Fun Run + Fitness event a success!
