The race is a “Do It Yourself” 5K run/walk done on your own time, at your own pace, and in your own place. As a team leader, you can approach it two different ways.

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

Thank you for being a part of feeding hungry kids on the weekend!
