10th Annual BackPack Extra Mile Walk: Serve. Care. Share

Saturday, April 29
10 a.m.
Lincoln East High School
1000 S. 70th Street

The fun begins with a pre-Walk pep rally, announcements and recognition of top fundraising schools. You can expect music, dancing, lots of laughter and plenty of cheer as we celebrate the success of the efforts of students, families, faculty and staff. Plus, Shades the balloon artist will be onsite making balloon animals and other fun balloon twists!

The actual Walk takes us on a loop, beginning and ending at the Lincoln East H.S. gymnasium. Wear your official event T-shirt to show your support of the BackPack Program, which helps provides vital food to more than 3,000 kids each Friday during the school year.

The Food Bank of Lincoln is extremely grateful to Lincoln Public Schools staff who organize and present this event in support of the 43% LPS students who participate in the free or reduced lunch programs, many who are recipients of the weekly, food-filled BackPacks.
