Cranksgiving in Northern Michigan (Still a go!)
UPDATE: COVID-19 cases across the state are dramatically high, and new orders restrict gatherings to less than 26 people. In response, we’re still committed to offering this vital opportunity to be active and connected to the community, but with a format change. For further details, please visit our Cranksgiving Registration Page.
With help from the great Food Rescue of Northwest Michigan, we are hosting our 3rd Annual Cranksgiving on Sunday, November 22, 2020.
Cranksgiving is part bicycle ride, part food drive that happens across the nation during November to benefit local charities and families as they prepare for Thanksgiving. It’s that simple. Ride bikes. Give back. Do good.
HOW IT WORKS
- Team Up – Decide if you are riding as a team (2-5 awesome people suggested) or on your own in either the open (5-6 miles) or family (2-3 miles) division.
- Register – There is no entry fee, but plan on spending $25/team on food items.
- Check the List – Norte will provide your team with a list of food items to collect.
- Be Kind – We also challenge your team to commit at least one act of random kindness during your collection run. Let’s make people smile and make someone’s day. Here’s a list for inspiration.
There are no winners, but teams are more than welcome to create their own challenges and mini-games
Get Out and Stay Active Responsibly
- Health Check – Self monitor and stay home if you’re feeling sick.
- Socialize Outside – You have up to 20 times higher risk of getting sick inside. If you do get together inside, include no more than two households and limit time inside together.
- Wear a mask – Take it off when you eat or drink, then put it back on, even outside.
- Physically Distanced – Keep six feet apart as much as you can.
- Keep it Down – When possible, keep voices down. Higher volumes can increase COVID transmission by 30 times.
- Wash Hands – Wash hands regularly. 20 seconds with soap and water.
