Prepare to Walk this April!

This year's annual BackPack Extra Mile Walk will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 23, at Lincoln East High School.

For over a decade, the LPS BackPack Extra Mile Walk has eased hunger in our community. Funds raised from the event directly support Child Hunger Programs at the Food Bank of Lincoln, providing LPS students and families with weekly and monthly access to nutritious food options through the BackPack Program and School Food Markets.

Return to this page as we get closer to Walk Day for more information.

There are two major goals for the annual walk:

  • Educating our community about the needs of children at Lincoln Public Schools
  • Raising money for this valuable program
