The Kidzcope Good Grief 5K & Kids Run Event promises a morning of fun while providing hope for grieving families. Honor the memories of loved ones and celebrate life by participating in a delightful morning 5K and Kids Run route through the Waterfront, beginning and ending at Whole Foods, located at the corner of 13th and Webb. Walk, run, jog either distance or both!
After the race, stick around for food, drinks and music. Awards will be made to the top three male and female finishers in the 5K. Age groups are: 12 and younger, 13-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 and 70 and older. Additionally, the top three youth finishers, male and female in the Kids Run will be recognized in the following age groups: 6 and younger, 7-9 and 10-12.
Proceeds will be used to advance the mission of Kidzcope, a nonprofit, non-affiliated organization which provides support and a comforting environment to grieving children and their families. The only organization of its kind in south central Kansas, volunteers lead group activities and through play and art therapy children learn there is hope after the loss of a loved one.
