Event details and schedule

Did you know that it can take up to 10:00am on a Tuesday for a child’s brain to begin fully functioning again after skipping meals over the weekend? Did you know that in 2010 Forsyth County was the #1 most food insecure county in the nation? Since then, Forsyth Backpack Program has worked to provide at-risk children with meals over the weekends, when they do not have access to the free meals that their school provides. Join Forsyth Backpack Program in a charity 5k to help raise awareness and money for at-risk children in Forsyth County. The 5k will be held on the Forsyth Country Day School Cross Country Course at 9:00 on Saturday, September 22nd. Admission to the race is $25, and $30 at the door. One ticket provides meals for an at-risk child for a month. Winners from each heat will be provided with prizes. For an additional $10 you can purchase a T-shirt in addition to your admission fee. T-shirts will be for sale at the race for $15, but the supply is limited.
