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!
