The Chick-fil-A 5k is a charity race hosted by the Heritage Chick-fil-A Leader Academy. Each year we work with a new organization, offering our support to community organizations that help our Wake County community. Offering activities for people of all ages, from the race to zumba and even the countless free kids games constantly running on the field there is definitely something that will suit everyone. One hundred percent of race fees and fundraiser funds go to the years beneficiary. Scroll down to read about 2020's beneficiary: Backpack Buddies

2020 Chick-fil-A 5k Video

BackPack Buddies is designed to provide children from low-income households with 10-12 pounds of nutritious kid-friendly groceries for the weekend when free school lunches and breakfasts are not provided. Imagine leaving school on Friday afternoon and not having anything to eat until Monday morning.  This is a reality for some of the children in our schools.  We provide food every weekend to children who are identified as ‘food insecure’ by teachers and guidance counselors at each school. The bags contain kid-friendly food for weekend meals and snacks. There are approximately 400 children in our region receiving weekly bags from North East Wake Backpack Buddies.


Backpack Buddies Mission:

"Our goal is to provide healthy, balanced meals to children in our community who may go hungry over the weekend. Students we serve, who normally receive a free or reduced breakfast and lunch at school, no longer have to worry about where their weekend meals will come from allowing them to focus on their education."
