For almost a decade, University Heights participated in the Severson Charity Challenge sponsored by the Metropolitan Planning Organization of Johnson County (MPOJC). Each government entity—University Heights, Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Tiffin, and Johnson County—selected a local charity for which elected officials and staff collected donations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made such an event difficult, so the MPOJC is leading an online event: the Trails to Table Challenge.
The MPOJC staff will walk, run, and bike the 100+ miles of trails in the Metro Area, and they invite the public to join them. The goal is to raise $10,000 for local food banks (CommUnity Food Bank in Iowa City, the Coralville Community Food Pantry, and North Liberty Community Food Pantry), while promoting safe outdoor activities and the area trail system.
To find out more about the Challenge and how to donate to the fund for area food banks, go to the MPOJC's Trails to Table Challenge web page.
