KVC Walk Me Home

Saturday, May 11, 2013


Join us for the 2nd annual KVC “Walk Me Home...to the place I belong” 5K Run/Walk for Foster Care on May 11th, 2013, in Shawnee, Kansas at Theatre in the Park within Shawnee Mission Park. Help us support foster children and youth throughout the Greater Kansas City Metro Area! Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with the race starting at 9:00 a.m. *Rain or Shine*

The Walk Me Home 5K event was developed in order to bring awareness to foster care, promote fostering, and raise funds needed to support the programs and services directly benefitting the 1,300 Kansas City Metro area foster children.

This is the fifth year in which a nationwide event of this magnitude has been organized with specific focus on foster care. Please join us at Theatre in the Park and walk for a terrific cause. With your help we can make a lasting, positive impact in the lives of Kansas City’s foster children!

All participants are asked to pay a $30 registration fee or to collect at least $30 in pledges to cover their registration. Participants will receive a free t-shirt and race day gift bag! Youth 12 and under may register for $10.

Registration must be completed by April 24th at 4 p.m. to receive a t-shirt on the day of the race. Additional pledges may be turned in the day of the event by cash or check. Credit cards will only be accepted through this site.  Checks should be made payable to KVC Behavioral Healthcare with Walk Me Home 5K on the memo line.
