BackPack Extra Mile Walk
April 27, 2019
Saturday, April 27, 2019 10 a.m. Lincoln East High School 1000 S. 70th Street
Special thanks to our 2019 Extra Mile Champion Sponsors:
The fun begins with a pre-Walk pep rally, announcements and recognition of top fundraising schools. You can expect music, dancing, lots of laughter and plenty of cheer as we celebrate the success of the efforts of students, families, faculty and staff.
The actual Walk takes us on a loop, beginning and ending at the Lincoln East H.S. gymnasium. Wear your official event T-shirt to show your support of the BackPack Program, which helps to provide vital food to more than 1,600 LPS kids each Friday during the school year.
The Food Bank of Lincoln is extremely grateful to Lincoln Public Schools staff who organize and present this event in support of the 46% LPS students who participate in the free or reduced lunch programs, many who are recipients of the weekly, food-filled backpacks.
