The seventh annual Lincoln Public Schools BackPack Extra Mile Walk is set for April 5th at Lincoln East High School.

In six years of walking, LPS has raised almost $810,000 for the Food Bank of Lincoln’s BackPack program, which provides Friday food-filled backpacks to children who need help with nourishment over the weekends.

The two major goals of the walk are raising money for hungry children and educating the community about the needs of children attending LPS.
