The 4th annual St. Louis Idiotarod as they say: “pays homage to the Alaskan Iditarod, except the dogs are replaced with people, the sled with a shopping cart, and the race is set on the streets of St. Louis.” So not really like it at all, but definitely fun. Teams of 5 dress up in crazy costumes and run through the streets of downtown stopping at various downtown checkpoints and completing challenges. Teams are judged on costumes, team spirit and best cart. A portion of the donations benefit Operation Food Search.

To donate.

*Shout out to one of our bloggers: Ryan Brockschmitt, who participates every year. His team name is ‘After School Special’ in case you’re looking for someone to donate to.

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef America...as long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
