GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are once again helping fans get "Back to Football" with events coinciding with the beginning of training camp.

The fifth annual 5K Run/Walk at Lambeau Field is set for 6:30 p.m. July 26. The run winds through area neighborhoods and ends up at Lambeau Field, where the finish line is a Packers "G" painted on turf located in the parking lot. Each participant receives a T-shirt, bag and medal. Awards will also be presented to the top three finishers in each age group, the team says.

A portion of the proceeds from the race goes to the American Red Cross, Volunteer Center of Green Bay, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Golden House.

The day before, a 1K Kids Run for children 10 and under is scheduled for 6 p.m., to be followed by Movie Night at Lambeau Field. The Packers plan to release more details about the movie night later.

Training camp is set to begin July 26.
