The Kirkwood 5K is a family-friendly race through the Kirkwood neighborhood that directly supports
local non-profit BackPack Beginnings!
The primary mission of BackPack Beginnings is to deliver child-centric services to feed, comfort and
clothe children in need. They do this by ensuring food and basic necessities are given directly to children
in need to make a lasting impact on their health and well-being. BackPack Beginnings supports over
8,500 children in over 60 different Guilford Country Schools working with 95 percent volunteer efforts.
The Kirkwood 5K is the perfect way to give back to the community while running, walking or pushing
with your family and friends. We appreciate donations of any size and encourage you, your family and
friends to join us on August 24th at 9:00 a.m. for the 2019 Kirkwood 5K! We’ll see you on race day!
