Employees of Lincoln Public Schools have again joined forces with the Food Bank of Lincoln to host the seventh annual BackPack Extra Mile Walk on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at East High School. The event is set to being at 10:00 am.
The Backpack Extra Mile Walk is a wonderful way to promote physical
activity in a fun family environment while raising money for a worthy program. Kids are the most important and valuable asset
we have and the BackPack program provides weekly food filled backpacks to families in need.
The BackPack Extra Mile Walk helps raise funds for LPS children, helping our families meet a
basic need: Food. During the week, students on free and reduced lunch are provided nutritious
breakfasts and lunches at school, but a weekend can be a long time to go without food.
By participating in the walk, you are taking the first step towards fighting hunger in our
community. Participants show they support the children of Lincoln and are dedicated to making
a difference in their well being.
This is the seventh year for LPS to host this important community service project,
and we hope we can do even better. Last year more than walkers and supporters raised over $150,000 for
our community’s children.
