Can you imagine what it would be like to actually miss a meal because you could not afford one? According to data provided by the United Way, "Over 1,200 elementary school students in Bismarck and Mandan Public Schools qualify for free or reduced lunch. When school is out of session, many of these children lose access to regular, healthy meals." So, it is so important for our community to pull together so nobody is starving in our community.

Speaking of community, it definitely takes a community to put together such a big charitable event. We cannot forget to thank our wonderful sponsors for 96 Hours of Caring:
