I would like to express a sincere appreciation of and thank you to those who have supported the Bemidji Angel Fund 5K.

This event supports the Bemidji Area Schools Food Service Department to work with district families in need. The awareness of the Angel Fund has brought an insight to the need to feed children and the responsibility and commitment of doing that. An ongoing effort and private/public collaboration have been established because of community members that saw the need and acted.

I want to acknowledge Emmy Prince for coordinating the successful 5K with many sponsors and much support from area businesses and community members. Her ambition produced a successful 5K again this year. The result of this effort will relieve unpaid meal debt for many families. Food Services of America came alongside the Bemidji Angel Fund 5K to provide a meal for 5K participants.

Thank you to all who participated and supported the Bemidji Angel Fund 5K.
