The tradition continues virtually this Thanksgiving with the iconic “I Like Pie” Run/Walk with all proceeds benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend, Girls on the Run of Central Oregon and NeighborImpact. The goal of this year’s event is to create a platform for the same family and friend connections and traditions to continue with socially distancing protocols in place. Participants choose their own small group, route and distance, and complete their run/walk on any date between November 23 and 29. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative group pictures, best costume, most creative pie and more! The best part, if you’re unable to travel this year to Bend you can participate in I Like Pie from wherever you safely reside. First 2500 to register will receive a one of a kind winter I Like Pie beanie!
