Did you know that it can take up to 10:00 a.m. on a Tuesday for a child’s brain to begin fully functioning again after skipping meals over the weekend? Did you know that in 2010 Forsyth County was the #1 most food insecure county in the nation? Since 2013, Forsyth Backpack Program has worked to provide at-risk children with meals over the weekends, when they do not have access to the free meals that their school provides. Join Forsyth Backpack Program in a charity 5k to help raise awareness and money for at-risk children in Forsyth County. The 5k will be held on the Forsyth Country Day School Cross Country Course at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 21st. Providing children with meals over the weekend is an important (and tax deductible) cause. Every dollar donated provides a meal for an at-risk child, and as little as $275 feeds the child for the entire school year, including holidays. Any amount of money makes a difference
