Delivering packs, pencils and promise to children around the globe
Copyright 2013 Global Backpack Project
Join us for the second annual Back to School Fun Run at beautiful Willamette Park for a positive, energized event to celebrate the beginning of school. Parents can celebrate the end of summer while kids are running off those back-to-school jitters. This community event benefits at-risk girls and boys by providing sturdy new backpacks and school supplies to those who might otherwise start school without the supplies they need to succeed.

When: Sunday, August 25th, 2013
Who: All are welcome! Run or walk at your own pace to put a smile on a child's face.
