Feeding Tomorrow Fun Run + Walk Fundraiser

Run + Walk:
July 16, 6:30 am

After Party:
July 16, 7:00 - 8:00 am

You can sign up for the Fun Run + Walk when you register for IFT FIRST: Annual Event and Expo.

Ever since a small group of runners gathered at the Institute of Food Technologist’s 2001 annual meeting to get some exercise and raise funds for students, the Feeding Tomorrow Fund 5K Fun Run + Walk event has been an amazing opportunity to support food science students, join a community, and break a sweat!

Proceeds from this 5K run or 1-mile walk support IFT’s Feeding Tomorrow Fund in supporting the next generation of food scientists and creating a sustainable talent pipeline for our field.
