Local nonprofit Backpack International will be holding a “5K and 1-Mile Fun Run” on April 4 at Town Creek Park in Auburn.
Participants may run or walk any of the races and are asked to bring a hygiene product, toy or school supply item for the organization’s annual summer mission trip to Guyana in South America. This is a rain-or-shine event.
For more information, donate or volunteer, send email to info@backpackinternational.org. The park is located at 1150 S. Gay St. Both races will start at 8 a.m.
