AAU Track and Field Head of Clerks, Betty Parker, club president, along with other volunteers organized the day as a way to provide backpacks and other school supplies to needy youth in the Kannapolis area.
As part of the overall AAU Cares program, the AAU track and field program made a donation of AAU t-shirts and backpacks to the event.
