_ The 2020 Do It Yourself 5K Walk/Run:
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. Currently, Blessings feeds nearly 6,000 kids in Chicagoland, but the number of food-insecure kids surpasses 150,000.
It is a “Do It Yourself” 5k run/walk done on your own time, at your own pace, and in your own place. You can participate any time between Saturday, November 7th, and Sunday, November 15th. Be sure to register by October 22nd to receive a t-shirt prior to the race!
*Family and adult + buddy registrations should be made simultaneously to receive the registration discount. Shirts must be shipped to the same mailing address. A buddy is a friend of an adult registrant.
