OUR CAUSE

Proceeds benefit the KC Blind All-Stars Foundation (KCBAS), supporting the Kansas State School for the Blind (KSSB).   The monies raised from this year's event will go toward replacing the gym floor at KSSB.  To date, we have raised $98,120 of what is needed to cover the cost.  THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS AND SUPPORTERS! 
This year we hope to exceed our goal to complete renovations on the gym and begin work on other athletic facilities in need of repair. 

MAKE YOUR MILES COUNT! Be an individual, team, family, or corporate fundraiser.
When registering, indicate if you want to donate, "elect a fundraiser to donate to a cause," or "elect "become a Fundraiser" if you would like to set up a new fundraiser.

 

SWAG (Medal and T-shirt)

Every participant receives a medal.  Medals will be given at packet pick up to reduce contact between participants and volunteers at the finish line.
Participants registered by September 1st are guaranteed a race t-shirt.  It takes two weeks to get the shirts printed and delivered to us.  Those who register after September 1st will receive a race medal but will not be guaranteed a race t-shirt.  

Virtual Participants:  We will mail the shirt and participant's medal to you unless you come during the packet up.  Please register by September 1st if you want your t-shirt by September 24th.

Sorry, no exchanges on t-shirt sizes at packet pick-up.

 

 

VOLUNTEER SIGN UP WILL BE AVAILABLE BY JULY 1st, 2022

Positions include packet stuffing, packet pick up, course monitoring, finish line area, water stations, race set up, race cleanup - and more. Volunteers receive a free event t-shirt, and complimentary food & beverage.
