Mark your calendars for one of the best events of the summer! On Saturday, August 23rd at 9 AM, the KIRKWOOD 5K is BACK!!

The Kirkwood 5K is a “run/walk/push” through the Kirkwood neighborhood that benefits BackPack Beginnings, a local nonprofit that provides backpacks full of food and comfort items to kids who need them during the school year.

Charles Aris, is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the Kirkwood 5K for the third year in a row. We underwrite all the costs, so every dollar of your registration supports kids in Greensboro through BackPack Beginnings. Last year, we raised enough money to provide over 120 kids with food every weekend throughout the school year. This year, we want to do even better. SO WE NEED YOU!

Here's how you can help:

SIGN UP!! RIGHT NOW! No excuses – this is a run/walk/push, and I KNOW each of you can do at least one of those things! Just click here and sign up: There’s a free fun run for the kids, bouncy houses, food – it’s a fun family Saturday morning outing!

Get your family, friends, colleagues, and their friends to come, too!

Not in town that weekend but want to help? Visit to donate and help kids in need.

BackPack Beginnings is a 100% volunteer led organization, so your donation will go directly to kids who need it.

So come join us - The more participants, the more kids we feed, and the more fun we’ll have. Run, Walk or Push!
