This event is a fun family event! Handmade medals from South Africa are awarded to the top three runners in each age group. All proceeds go directly to our mission initiatives in Africa for clean water, education, and community health. Past proceeds have helped provide medical supplies, scholarships, health training, and wells for clean drinking water.
This race is a fast, flat course, and we have some of the best post-race food in town (so we've been told). After the main 5K event, a kid's fun run- 'Rocket Dash', will be held. The race begins and ends at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, located in Leawood, Kansas. This is our 12th year to host this event. We'd love to have you join us (but please, no pets).
