All proceeds from the Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes go to support charitable causes.
The primary beneficiary for 2014 is Lakes Area Middle Schooler's "Power Packs"
Power Packs are bags that consist of 3-5 pounds of nutritious, non-perishable food products. Along with these snacks is literature on nutrition, activities, and tips on how to develop healthy eating habits. The premise of the program is that nutritious foods are an important part of normal brain development and growth. This program is based on income guidelines and is free to qualifying students and parents who wish to participate. The Power Packs are delivered monthly, directly and discreetly into the student’s backpacks to take home.
The Brainerd Jaycees are proud to also support the following charities:
Brainerd Amateur Radio
First Lutheran Church
Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity
Nisswa Parks & Rec
Nisswa Fire Department
Nothing But Nets
St. Francis School
