Did you know that 1 out of 5 children in Iowa do not have enough to eat?

26 teams signed up for Relaycross on Sunday, Oct 26th at Stone Park in Des Moines with hopes to raise food for a good cause - the Food Bank of Iowa. And raise food they did!

Volunteers said folks were just driving up, donating food, and leaving.

The cost to participate? - One bag of food!

Racing in circles for 2 hours and three truck loads of food later, the participants were given high-fives as the BIKEIOWA Cycling Team tore down the course and heard over to el Bait Shop for a post party celebration where even more food was donated.

A Heartfelt thanks to everyone that came out to support Relay Cross. 104 people took time out of their day to have fun and support a good cause. Three truck loads of food and goods were donated for the Food Bank of Iowa.

People like you and events like this are what make our community so damn good.
