The Kirkwood 5K


Serving children in need one backpack at a time

The annual Kirkwood 5K is right around the corner!

Join us in supporting BackPack Beginnings in providing nutritious food, basic necessities and comfort items to children in need. Since the founding of BackPack Beginnings in 2010, it has grown from feeding a few children in Greensboro, North Carolina, to an established program aiding 54 organizations in North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region – all stemming from volunteer efforts.

Bring the whole family to the Kirkwood 5K on August 25! The event includes a Kids Dash, a full 5K and an awards ceremony afterward. Check out the full race details here.

Charles Aris Inc.’s sponsorship of the 2018 Kirkwood 5K ensures that 100 percent of all proceeds go directly to BackPack Beginnings and the children it serves.

We look forward to seeing you on August 25!
