We’ve had a rainy fall here in Charlotte, but on Sunday, November 8, the clouds mostly parted, and 24 riders set out on their bikes for the fourth annual Charlotte Cranksgiving—the third Cranksgiving hosted by Charlotte Spokes People. Altogether, the participants brought back 660.9 pounds of food on their bikes to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank. Additionally, we received $48.72 of donations, purchasing a further 341 pounds of food for a total 1,000 pounds!
All of our riders’ contributions were invaluable, but we did have some winners who earned prizes from our sponsors:
- Top Team: Tate, Grace, Andy, and Shelly with 268.4 lbs
- 2nd Place Team: MFB (Mighty Fine Bikes) with 109.5 lbs
- 3rd Place Team: Rascio family with 101.3 lbs
- Top Individual: Carl with 65.2 lbs
Thanks to Amanda and Bethanie for officiating!
Thanks also to our Cranksgiving sponsors for their generous prize donations!
See photos of the event below and come ride with us next year! Our goal next year is to collect 2,000 pounds of food – literally, a TON of food.
