The United Church of Hinesburg is hosting its fourth annual 5K & 1K Fun Run/Walk on May 21st as a fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbank’s BackPack Program. This nationally recognized program of Feeding America is designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources, like school breakfast and lunch, are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. For more information on this program, we encourage you to visit: http://www.vtfoodbank.org/
Because of the BackPack Program:
• 1,000 VERMONT youth receive food packs each week
• In a year, the VT Foodbank will package nearly 35,000 bags or 123,000 pounds of food for children in need
This event has quickly become a major contributer to the VT Foodbank, right beside the Harpoon Point to Point and the Subaru "Feel the Love" fundraising events. Last year alone we were able to donate $6,800 to the BackPack Program.
One hundred percent of proceeds go directly to the VT FoodBank! Please consider coming to walk, run, and participate in this positive community event. Volunteers are also needed. To register online, please click on the following link: https://
Race day registration will also available, starting at 7:00am at CVU High School. Please note that prices go up on race day, so we encourage you to register online!
