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.
