Bellevue business Shoes-n-Feet recently donated $1,000 to Renewal Food Bank of Bellevue.

The funds came from their eighth annual Beat the Bird 5K and Lil’ Drumstick 1K, which was held on Thanksgiving Day.

This year’s race was organized by Adam Stuhlfaut, the director of running at Shoes-n-Feet, a locally owned and operated shoe store located at the Kelsey Creek Center.

“We are thrilled to be donating to Renewal Food Bank,” Stuhlfaut said. “Renewal Food Bank feeds hundreds of hungry people from Bellevue, Redmond and Renton each week. Connecting with the local community is the foundation of local businesses like Shoes-n-Feet. We feel fortunate that we are able to help.”

The Beat the Bird 5K and Lil’ Drumstick 1K was started eight years ago as a fundraiser for Greatest Goal Global Ministries work in Sierra Leone. This year’s race attracted more than 350 people to participate in the 5K and 1K events.
