Two years ago, I received a kidney from one of my hero's Traci. To Celebrate, each year we host the Run the Challenge to raise awareness and money to help the 114,000 people waiting every day for a life saving organ transplant. So my family and I are excited to invite you to the 2019 Run the Challenge.

Run the Challenge is a 5k combined calisthenic event that supports organ donation, research, and promotes policies that promote organ donation. The 2019 Run the Challenge proceeds will go to Children's Mercy Hospitals Transplant Center and The Research Medical Center Transplant Institute. This event is for every level of fitness whether you are a casual walker or competitive runner this is for you.

There are 3 categories for participation:

Casual - enjoy a stroll, brisk walk or jog the 5k. This level is perfect for families or beginners.

Intermediate - you able to complete a 5k in under 35 minutes that includes moderate reps of calisthenics at each mile marker. The first 10 competitors will receive an official time.

Advanced - you able to complete a 5k in under 24 minutes that includes high reps of calisthenics at each mile marker. Competitors will receive an official time.

There will be activities and food truck(s) after the 5k. If you don't live in the area join the fun by running The Challenge Run remotely and/or by donating.

Thank you for your support!
