Are you looking for a great event to do with the family or even alone this weekend, while helping others?
The Kevin Gray Father's Day 5K Run is this Saturday, beginning at 7:30 a.m. The course hits CommunityAmerica Ballpark, the Kansas Speedway and Sporting Park.
The event celebrates the life of Kevin Gray, former President of the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation, who lost a battle with sarcoma, a rare cancer.
The run benefits the Kevin Gray Family Education Fund, the University of Kansas Cancer Center, and the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation. Last year, with more than 1,500 participants, the run raised nearly $80,000.
It's too late to register online, but not too late to participate and make a difference. On-site registration opens at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday at Sporting Park. For more information, click here.
