Chiditarod 2012 raises over $18,000 for Growing Home!

The 2012 Chiditarod was an incredible success! Teams raised over $18,000 for Growing Home, and 25,000 pounds of food for the Chicago Food Depository! Thanks to our current matching gift program, the funds raised will go twice as far to help Growing Home increase the availability of fresh vegetables in southern Chicago, including helping create a community garden in the 8th Ward.

We would like to thank the organizers, and all of the teams and their donors, particularly Action Squad and Derailers (pictured below), each of which brought in over $5000!
