The SUNY Oneonta Sodexo team has partnered with the Oneonta Riverside Elementary School's Back Pack Program for the Mindful Mile & Fight Hunger 5k on September 29. All proceeds from the event will provide food for 107 Riverside children on the weekends when children aren't receiving school meals. Nearly 50% of the Riverside families receive backpacks and the program is completely funded by donations from within the Oneonta community.  Last year's Mindful Mile & Fight Hunger 5k raised over $9000 for the program.

Registration for the race begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Alumni Field House on SUNY Oneonta campus.  Click here to find out more and register.
