Join us for the Inaugural Dream KCK 5K sponsored by Mission Adelante and the Second Wind Foundation!  Our organizations serve in Kansas City, Kansas and Honduras, but have many shared goals including celebrating diverse cultures, equipping and empowering people from all places through creating jobs and building relationships, establishing community collaboration, developing leaders, and transforming neighborhoods and the world for Christ. Thank you for participating in our 5K to help us reach our goals!


The course follows historic Central Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas to Wyandotte High School - beginning and ending in Bethany Park.  It is a fairly flat course with some hills to make it interesting!  Awards will be given to the first three male and female finishers. Strollers and families are welcome!  After the run, enjoy some of KCK's finest foods, cuisines, arts and crafts from local businesses as well as the 42nd Annual Central Avenue Betterment Association's Dotteversity Parade.  Historically, the parade draws 5,000 people to the area - along with almost 30 floats and 4 marching bands.   You can run, have great food, listen to lively music, and meet people from all places - all in one day! 

The aid station will have water and Blue Frost Gatorade.  There will be two porta potties located at the aid station as well along with an RN on standby for medical help.  At the finish line, there will be additional water, apples and bananas.


You will receive $5 off the registration price for yourself and each of your friends and family members by choosing the multi-person option at the bottom of registration.  The more the merrier!  Kids 10 and under are free.  There will be no race day registration.


Your race fees will be split between the Second Wind Foundation and Adelante Thrift. When you check out, there is an opportunity to donate an additional amount to each charity.  Thank you for your generosity in helping us reach our goals.
