Raffle - we have several gift baskets that you can "bid on" with raffle tickets. Each entrant will get tickets, and you can purchase more tickets (cash or debit) onsite. All proceeds go to the 1DOS Foundation www.1dosf.org to help us continue our fitness scholarship work.

CoffeeCake KC https://coffeecakekc.com/ is scheduled to have their truck on site as well!

1DOS Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization based in Olathe, dedicated to providing fitness scholarships. We find candidates who are looking to get healthy, needing to get fit (often for medical reasons) - but can't afford the associated costs.  Our scholarships provide gym memberships, fresh produce, and other assistance to these committed individuals. 

Safe racing guidelines courtesy of KC Running Company: 

  • Drive thru packet pickup

  • Require masks to be worn pre and post race when not running

  • Staggered start in small waves, based on expected finish time given at registration

  • Marked spots in the start chute for people to stand six feet apart while waiting to start

  • Bottles of water set out on a table at the water station instead of filling and handing out cups of water

  • Bib chips instead of shoe chips so no volunteers are in the finish chute removing timing chips

  • No race results printed at the race, posted to the internet instead

  • No awards given out at the event, mailed out afterwards

  • Grab and go bags with medals, swag, bottled water, and post race snacks are set out on a table at the finish for the finishers to pick up

  • Generally trying to reduce contact and congestion and promote social distancing

Deana Novak and family

Meet Deana Novak! Deana is one of our fitness scholarship recipients.  After being told by doctors that she wouldn't live to see her kids graduate high school unless she made some changes, Deana had the motivation she needed.  However, with 4 young children and her husband newly laid off, the financial was a huge issue.  1DOS Foundation filled that gap, sponsoring Deana to go to the gym 4 times a week, providing fresh, healthy food options for the family, and the support to keep moving forward.

While we are thrilled to provide that support, we are so proud of Deana and the work she put in. She got up early and worked out at 4:30 to make everything fit in her family schedule. She is putting in the work, and she is reaping the results - down 50+ pounds and ran her first 5k and first Spartan race last year!
