Labcorp Feeds Kids This Summer With Blessings in a Backpack

Hunger doesn’t take a summer break, so Labcorp is collaborating with Blessings in a Backpack for a summer feeding program that will benefit more than 500 kids in Louisville.

The 0.5K is back and better than… last time!

On June 25, join us at the Blessings in a Backpack 0.5K, and no… that’s not a typo. The “race” is, in fact, only 546 yards. It lampoons the typical 5K but without any of the training or effort, while raising money for our local Blessings in a Backpack programs. Thank you, Dawne Gee, for talking to Kaela Hammerstrom and Robin Rueff about this year’s event.

How Sisters Give Back To the Community During Their Final Softball Season Together

Cassady and Carmyn Greenwood are in their final season playing on the same college softball team, the University of Louisville. They wanted to do something special to celebrate the season, so they’re selling t-shirts and other items and donating the proceeds to Blessings in a Backpack.
