Thank You for Participating in the Hustle Against Hunger Race!
Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever virtual race here at Terrapin Events, Hustle Against Hunger. With your help we’ve been able to provide over 1,000 meals to Oregon Food Bank to give to those locally in need, and we couldn’t have done it without you guys, our local community superheroes.
Your swag items will arrive right to your doorstep within 4-6 weeks, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the status of these items or should any delays come up during this time. Thank you again for hustling!
