Our Backpack Walk-A-Thon took place at the Spring Valley Park in Montgomeryville. The Giving Tree organized this family event to benefit Cradles to Crayons and their Back To School Backpack Campaign. This children’s organization provides children in low income situations the essentials they need. The goal was to raise enough money to fill 200 backpacks, and we are proud to say we met our goal!
The day was full of walking, music, face painting, outdoor games and prizes. All participants shared the same goal, to provide some children in Philadelphia the tools they need to start the school year.
