It’s time to giddy-up and support The Idaho Foodbank through the Beef Counts program and the Treasure Valley YMCA, by registering for “Race for the Steaks” which this year, is Raising the Steaks on Nutrition and Health. Your registration fee will be equally divided to help The Idaho Foodbank provide nutritious beef protein to those in need and supporting the Treasure Valley YMCA's community health programming that benefits individuals and families.
While COVID has pushed this annual race to go virtual – we are going prime time with a ‘beefed up’ race packet valued at over $40!
So, let’s get out and hit the trails and get ready to mooooove! You can still herd up your friends, create teams with co-workers or family, and come up with team names. That part will still be the same. We will be back next year but for now, we will keep everyone safe and healthy by going virtual.
Idaho’s beef industry recognizes its impact on Idaho and the effect it has on the local economies. Celebrating its Ten-Year Anniversary -- Beef Counts is a program designed to provide a consistent supply of high-quality protein throughout the year to The Idaho Foodbank. Donations have double the impact with matching donation by AgriBeef!
In response to the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Treasure Valley Family YMCA launched the 2020 COVID-19 Sustaining and Annual Fundraising Campaign to address our immediate crisis. This allowed us to sustain current programs and services, and to reopen with the staff and programming to meet the needs of our community.
Putting your strength behind nutrition and health makes a powerful impact in the community! Every registered racer has even more to gain with exciting prize drawings to cheer you along the way.
Each participant has the opportunity to join Food Network Host and Today Show regular, chef Mark Anderson of the Grill Dads for a virtual cooking class to learn how to make three meals from one cut of beef!
We hope very much that you are able to join us on race day however we know that sometimes the unexpected comes along and plans may change. Whatever the case, there are options to help you in the event that you are not able to participate in the race.
