Jump start your Thanksgiving morning with a fun 5K walk or run through historic Hyde Park in midtown Kansas City. Now in its sixth year, Pilgrim Run has quickly become a great tradition for runners and families alike. Proceeds from this event benefit the community programs of the Pilgrim Center. Learn more at www.pilgrimrun.org.
Immediately following the 5K run/walk will be the Cornerstones of Care Children's Dash, an exciting opportunity for children under the age of 8 to participate in a short race of their own!
