Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates:

As you know, COVID-19 has been on all of our minds right now, including ours at the Des Moines Mary's Meals: Race to Feed Kids. Recently, Des Moines officially cancelled all public gatherings through the date of our race in order to maintain the safety and health of our residents. Therefore, our annual 5K/10K race will be cancelled. All registered participants can have their money refunded or donated directly to Mary's Meals.


What will happen to our school in Malawi? 

Don't worry! While our school with over 900 children in Malawi still needs to be fed, we have not wavered on our commitment to them. We will work on fundraising opportunities throughout the year and are always accepting donations to feed our school. 


Save the date for next year's race: May 8, 2021.
