A great day. A grateful day.
Saturday was a great day! Sunny and warm weather was a welcome change to the 34 degrees endured at last year’s GO Project Family 5K. Children stress tested the bounce houses and then looked like they got shot out of a cannon to start the Kids’ Fun Run. Dennis Rogers’ Northwest Missouri State drum line announced the main event, as a few gunners and scores of weekend warriors tried to chase down Mike Fox as part of the traditional 5K Fox Hunt. Families pushing strollers enjoyed the 2K walk before getting in line for a pancake breakfast. Running/walking teams raised thousands to provide for the education and well-being of some wonderful children. Thank you to the more than 500 people who came to show their concern and support for orphans! We trust all had as much fun as we did!
Our hope is other cities will have their own “great days” for children who need family. It’s happening…in Austin, Nashville, Colorado, South Florida, and beyond. Simply because Our Heavenly Father is on the move to care for His kids, and we are grateful!
For those who ran in the 5K, race results can be found at www.kctrack.org.
