3rd Annual Tracks for Packs event helps support Madison Backpack Program

The 3rd annual Tracks for Packs 5K is coming up Saturday, Sept. 6. The event benefits the Madison Backpack Program, which is facilitated by God’s Outreach Food Pantry and Madison County Schools. You are welcome to register online or by printing a registration form at www.tracksforpacks.org. In the past two years, this event has raised more than $30,000 to help support the Madison Backpack Program. The program sends home more than 1,400 backpacks of food on the weekends with children of all ages across the district.

The Tracks for Packs 5K is also the first event in the Madison County Triple Crown. A $500 cash prize goes to the school with the most participants at the event. Other events in the MCTriple Crown include the Spoonbread Festival 5K on Sept. 20 and the MCS Pumpkin Run on Oct. 25. Cash prizes are awarded at those events as well and the school with the most participants at all three events receives an additional $1,000 prize.

Your support for the Madison Backpack Program and your school are certainly appreciated. Hope to see you there!
