About This Activity

Kylee's Kare Kits for Kidz is an organization that helps feed unfortuante children in Leominster, Ma. We currently feed 250 children in our town. It takes over $900 a week to feed our children. The food is distrubted in their back packs at their schools. The teacher's put them in the backpacks for them. We continue throughout the summer time to feed all of the children.

This is our second annual road race for our organization. All the monies go to feeding children, ages 3-18. Kylee is 13-years old. When she was 10 years old she noticed the children in the cafeteria eating breakfast. She went home and asked her grandmother, Lori why they ate there. Lori explained to her how some children do not have enough money to eat at home and some of them also get free lunches. She was worried about the children when they got home from school. She went to her principal with this concern and wanted to help. With the support of the principal, teachers, family, and her friends she started this organization. We started with 10 children and now we have 250.

Having this race will help buy the food to feed these children. It is one of our favorite fundraisers for this cause.

Thank you.
