Mayor Running 381 miles Thanks to generous community
Mayor Paula Dierenfeld has begun her journey of running 381 miles after the Johnston community responded in a tremendous way to her food pantry challenge. In December, the Mayor asked residents to donate bags of food or personal items, as well as monetary contributions, to the Johnston Partnership for a Healthy Community, the city's only food pantry. The Mayor promised to run one mile for every bag or $10 donated. By December 30, the city collected enough for 381 miles. The Mayor will run an average of eight miles per day and hopes to complete the 381 by President’s Day!
