In 2021, we replaced our regular local races, which were cancelled, with our own races to benefit various Treasure Valley non-profits. We are so proud of our Boise Galloway members, whose generosity have raised almost $6,000 for these amazing organizations.
In January, we held our first Boise Galloway members-only 5k/10k fun run to benefit Interfaith Sanctuary, and raised $800 to help this organization which is so vital to our community.
On June 19, our second 5k/10k fun run was held to commemorate Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Because of the generosity of our Boise Galloway members, we were able to present a check for $1,600 to Phillip Thomas, Executive Director of IBHM.
Our biggest charity race of the year, our Turkey Trot 10k/Half Marathon, took place the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Once again, our Boise Galloway members stepped up and collected $500 worth of food and supplies and a whopping $3,000 in donations to benefit The Idaho Foodbank.
