The Great Santa Run 5K 2017 - KC Running Company
We are excited to partner with the Kansas City Chefs Association again this year to present the Great Santa Run. The Chefs Association is the local chapter of the American Culinary Federation and for the past 40 years, this organization has been helping to transform the culinary landscape of Kansas City while providing service to local organizations. Their partnership with KC Running Company and the Great Santa Run has helped to raise thousands of dollars as well as in-kind donations of hundreds of toys for Operation Breakthrough in Kansas City.
The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment. Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children's families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid. A portion of the proceeds from registration fees and 100% of meal ticket sales will be donated to Operation Breakthrough. In addition, we ask each registrant to be a Santa and bring a $10 unopened, unwrapped toy to be given to local children at Operation Breakthrough. Each toy donor will receive a raffle ticket for each toy donated and the drawing for raffle prizes will take place after the race.
