This event is a fun family event! Handmade medals from South Africa are awarded to the top three timed 5k runners in each age group. All proceeds go directly to our missions initiatives in Africa for clean water, training, and community health. Past proceeds have helped provide medical supplies, equipment, education, 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 and 1 mile event, a Kid’s Fun Run (the 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 14th year to host this event. We’d love to have you join us!
We're always looking for volunteers to help with preparation and day-of activities. Learn more or sign-up to volunteer here.
