Mayors Run Total Miles (250 x 210 px) (2)

Mile update (3/10/22): Mayor Dierenfeld has completed 560 miles.  

Mile update (2/9/22): Mayor Dierenfeld has completed 328 miles. 

Mile update (1/25/22): Mayor Dierenfeld has already completed over 200 miles, 208 to be exact. We encourage her as she races to meet her goal of 1,132 miles later this spring. 

Mayor Paula Dierenfeld challenged Johnston residents for the eighth year in a row! The Mayor's Run for Food has Dierenfeld running one mile for every bag of food, personal items, or $10 donated to the Johnston Partnership Food Pantry between December 1 and 30, 2021. Her goal was 1,125 miles. We are pleased to announce that she has surpassed that goal and will be running 1,132 miles. Her goal back to herself is to complete those miles by May 15, 2022. Over the eight years of running for food, contributions have totaled $50,320. 

Donations can still be made throughout the year. 

  • Personal Items - Toilet paper, laundry detergent, Kleenex, deodorant, shampoo, and diapers
  • Monetary donations are always welcome, as the food pantry can purchase needed items in bulk and cheaper than the rest of the public can buy the same things. Your dollar is stretched further when given to the Johnston Partnership. Monetary donations can also be made online by visiting
