Pioneer Run

Featuring a 10K, 5K & 2-Mile Walk

                      Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 8 a.m.

English Landing Park, Parkville, MO

The Pioneer Run (10K, 5K, & 2-Mile Walk) is one of NEEC’s annual fundraising events.  It is held annually at the scenic English Landing Park in Parkville, MO.  Race registration is $30 (5K & 2-Mile Walk) and $35 (10K) and includes chip timing, awards, great prizes and raffle items, a pancake breakfast by Chris Cakes, adult beverages and t-shirts for all participants.  This year We Rock The Spectrum will have its We Rock on Wheels bus, a fun, mobile extension of We Rock the Spectrum at the race. The Bus comes with sensory-safe equipment designed to help children develop key motor skills, improve sensory processing, and learn to better communicate and play with others.

All proceeds from the event benefit NEEC’s fully inclusive early education and therapy services for children age’s birth to five who have special needs, as well as children who have typical needs in the Kansas City Northland area.

Registration will open in April 2018

** Registration fees are non-refundable.  No runner substitutions or transfers allowed. Strollers and dogs on leashes are allowed.**
