The Back2School 5K is excited to announce that we have added an additional beneficiary for our 2023 races!

Lunches of Love, a 503(c)(3) non-profit organization, is committed to helping end childhood hunger in Fort Bend County by providing free nutritious sack lunches during extended school holidays and weekends. Many children living in families facing food insecurity rely on school lunch as their only meal of the day. Lunches of Love is here to help fill the gap.
