Lettuce Club holds charity .175955K

Over $600 raised for NOVA Food Rescue

Lettuce Club members participate in the organization’s .1745955 charity run.

On April 24th Lettuce Club held its 1st ever charity run: the .17459555K. Its atypical distance may seem odd at first, but it aligns perfectly with the club’s mission.

“We cater to the lazy philanthropists,” said club co founder and senior Sophie Armstrong. “We basically make it as easy as possible to help your community out, and to us that means doing charity in a fun way, so there is some absurdness and silliness to Lettuce Club.”

At first, the club was aiming for a typical 5K, but ultimately decided that none of the members actually wanted to run that far.

“We thought it would be funny to choose a random number,” said Armstrong. “We used the exact distance from the stop sign (at the front of the parking lot) to the front of the counseling office and went on google maps and measured it out.”

This resulted in the distance of .1745955 K. The approximately thirty participants had event t-shirts and were awarded medals upon completion. The “race” took around two minutes from the starting gun until the last “runner” crossed the finish line.

Similar to other fundraisers the club hosts year round such as the annual Friendsgiving, button sales and a food drive, all the proceeds from the run will go to the NOVA Food Rescue. This year Lettuce Club has raised over $600.

Armstrong, considering the success of the run, said that the club will feature a similar run next year and states that “hopefully it gets bigger and bigger as time goes on.”
