Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series Podcast; Inspiring Oregonians to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.
Today on the podcast, you get to hear from 5 members of our community who were part of the June Virtual Distance Challenge. They share some of the people, places, and moments of beauty they have noticed over the past 30 days. We recorded this during a recent Saturday Zoom Happy Hour, which is part of the challenge and has been a really fun way to hear from great guests and get to know our community members as we connect with like-minded individuals
This month, as we’ve done since April (when we knew our in-person events weren’t going to be happening for a while), we’ve challenged people to stay active through setting a goal number of miles to walk kor run and then work hard to accomplish it.
As you’ll hear, it’s been extremely motivating for everyone (myself included) as we intentionally seek out the ‘brewtiful’ moments around us.
Help us hit $5,000
As you probably know, the COVID-19 pandemic has closed most locations where people experience food insecurity typically rely on for meals (schools, community centers, churches, etc). This has created a big gap in the way kids, seniors, and other at risk populations find food. To respond to this unprescedented need, the Oregon Food Bank has issued the #EmergeStronger Challenge. This is intended to not only meet the current need, but also emerge strong once we go back to “normal” whatever that may look like.
We’re working to raise $5,000 for the Oregon Food Bank and we’re REALLY close! $10 provides 30 meals to someone experiencing food insecurity. The need is more profound now than ever!

Join our Fundraising Campaign!
With the help of the Oregon Food Bank, we’ve created this special giving page to raise funds to go directly to their #EmergeStronger Challenge. Our goal is to raise $5,00-0 through our May and June challenges. If you are able, contribute something to the campaign.
All are Welcome!
We don’t care if you’re a runner, walker, or something else. We just care that you’re active! We often have 10 – 15 participants who walk our events!
