Another Fantastic Record-Breaking Year!

Wow - we're overwhelmed by this year's fantastic Sweep results. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and we had 201 racers register who brought in 7,990 lbs. of food - our biggest total yet! Racers, volunteers, fundraisers, sponsors, supporters - you really came out big this Saturday to support the San Francisco Food Bank! Thank you again for coming out. Hundreds of families in need truly appreciate it.

CARGO RACE WINNERS


The men's CARGO race Winners: Eric + Cooper "Sprocket" Downing are a remarkable father-and-son team that not only rode a tandem, but they created a shopping cart train that hauled in 845 lbs. of food in 2 hours and 10 minutes! Congrats to them on their spectacular win and enjoy the Burley Travoy Trailer!



The woman's winner of the CARGO race was Bridget May, who brought 111 lbs. of food! Way to rock it, lady!

SPEED RACE WINNERS

Adam Shapiro won the Men's SPEED race at 1 hr., 58 minutes! Hope you enjoy your Ritte van Vlaanderen frame and a big high-five to you!

Two other racers came in before Adam Shapiro, but unfortunately were relegated due to a missing receipt and shopping at the wrong checkpoint. We'd like to recognize both Jeremiah Davis and Evan Sarna for being super speedy - better luck next time and thanks for helping out the SF Food Bank!

Katie Styer won the Women's SPEED race at 2 hrs., 20 minutes! She wins a Volume frame and fork from Montano Velo. Way to kick ass!

FUNDRAISING WINNERS

Total raised in 2011: 
$9,652!*** 

***This total is now 10,298.51, as an additional $646.51 came in from donations on the day of the race and participants who sent in leftover money from their donations to the SF Food Bank on our behalf!
