Buddy Run Benefiting Backpack Buddies

September 16, 2017

This Saturday morning run is great way for the whole family to start the day. There is a 5K, 3K, and 1-mile run/walks. The runs start in front of Discovery Point Heritage Wake Forest and all routes stay in the residential community without crossing major roads. During and after the race enjoy a bounce house for the kids, free face painting, and munchies for the whole family. Please bring at least 1 appropriate food item to the race to contribute to the Backpack Buddy food drive. This USATF-certified and sanctioned 5K benefits all the North East Wake (NEW) Backpack Buddy program. They are all volunteer-driven organization providing select children in our schools with backpacks of food over a weekend. If not for the Backpack Buddies, many of these children may not have a regular meal outside of school.
