Join us this Saturday for the Kirkwood 5K! K5K is a family focused run/walk/push designed to get the entire community involved! We want to empower students, teachers, parents, children, grandparents, friends, families, co-workers to join us in taking a stand against hunger. The flat course is nestled in the cozy, neighborhood streets of Kirkwood and promises to be a FAST, easy, and refreshing 5K. All proceeds for the 2014 K5K will benefit BackPack Beginnings thanks to Charles Aris, Inc.

BackPack Beginnings is working to help children in need one backpack at a time. Our Food Backpack Program is a weekly feeding program established to directly impact childhood hunger in Guilford County by sending school children home with backpacks full of nutritious, kid-friendly food over the weekends during the school year. There are over 57% of students in Guilford County on free and reduced price meals who have little to eat over the weekend. Your race proceeds will help these children!

Each step you take towards the finish line helps BackPack Beginnings take another step toward helping a child in need. Don’t delay… sign up today at K5K 2014.
