Run for the Hospitality Industry

 In Uncategorized


Remember back to the last time you went out to eat.  A first date?  A family celebration?  The big game with the boys?  A night out with the girls?

Think of the food, the atmosphere, the people.  Remember the host that seated you. The server who brought you everything you asked for.  The chef.  The staff that did the dishes.

We will get back there again.  You can do your part to make sure that server, that restaurant is there when we are able to.  Consider joining the 19 Crimes Run4Relief.  A healthy activity for you.  A good deed for others.

The 19 Crimes Run4Reliefis a virtual run aimed at raising the spirits of Americans experiencing the COVID-19 crisis and raising significant funds to support the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be applied directly to restaurant workers throughout the U.S. facing financial hardships as a direct result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The virtual race can take place from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. You have the choice of a 19K (11.8 miles) or a 5K (3.1 miles). We encourage you to do your miles at one time but you have one month (April 19 to May 19) to do your distance. Regardless of the distance you select, you will be rewarded with:

  • A Unique Wine Stopper Finishers Medal.
  • That Warm Feeling you get by helping others in need!

Your medal will be shipped, free of charge to those in the continental US. Shipping target date is June 1, 2020.
