The third annual Schlep for CBS is set for Sunday, October 23 at 1:30 pm at Twin Lakes Pavilion. We hope you can join us for this run/walk/roll (5K or 1 mile) fundraiser. Sign up here: https://runsignup.com/Race/MO/Columbia/SchlepforCBS
Our goals are to have fun and support our awesome mid-MO Jewish community. Last year we had 62 Schleppers and we raised over $4,400.
The race this year will be similar to last year’s, including:
Marked Course: Our Schleppers in Columbia will start and end at the Twin Lakes Pavilion after a jaunt through Forum Nature Preserve.
Student Discounts: Only $10 for any student Schlepper – grade school through college!
Fundraising Opportunities: Schleppers will have the option again, if they choose, to raise money beyond their registration fees. Raising money for CBS is as simple as sending out an email to friends and family.

In months with a fifth Sunday, CBS provides a full dinner to those in need through the Loaves & Fishes program. We are serving Sunday, October 30, and we need donations of food items as well as volunteers to set up, serve, and clean up.
Bring food to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd. (back entrance), before 4:15 pm that day. Volunteers setting up/serving/cleaning up should arrive by 4:30 pm. We expect to serve about 150 people, and the need for volunteers to serve is especially critical.
