Description

The Chicago Chapter of Blessings in a Backpack presents the second annual "Do It Yourself" 5K Walk/Run!

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.
