MD5K 15 volunteers

Join the MD5K Volunteer Crew (Men Wanted!)

March 27, 2016

KCE is looking for a few good men – ok, more like a lot of good men – to help make the Mother’s Day 5K a success. We need volunteers on the course during the race, plus helpers before and after for all kinds of activities. What’s in it for you? The appreciation of 4,000 happy, healthy ladies. Plus, a men’s volunteer t-shirt – no pink flowers!

Learn more and sign up here. (Ladies: we’d love to have your help before or after the race too.)


Port-a-pot Decorating Contest

March 27, 2016

Do you watch too much HGTV? Here’s something you can do with all that pent-up creativity. Decorated potties are a beloved tradition at the MD5K, and we invite you to take part! We have 40 potties that need some help being beautiful. And this year we have two great top prizes: $50 in movie passes. Yes, you can even volunteer for more than one! Please sign up here and join the fun! More details: Portapot flyer.

Here’s to the beginning of another great year! We hope you will join 4,000 women and girls at the Start Line under our beautiful balloon arch. Moms, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, girlfriends — all come out to the KC Express Mother’s Day 5K to support each other and have fun on the holiday that honors women. Sign up TODAY!

Did you know that the Mother’s Day 5K is completely owned, operated, and delivered to you by KC Express, a running and walking club for women? If you are passionate about running/walking and staying active, we invite you to join us to meet some like-minded women! We offer weekly group runs/walks to encourage each other to keep moving, educational talks on health and wellness, and friendships that’ll last a lifetime! Learn more at kcexpress.org.

We’re excited to unveil the 2016 MD5K daisy logo (in the banner above), designed by long-time KC Express member, Trudy Nepstad, with help from Lori Barnes of Blue Chip Athletics (our outstanding t-shirt printer). We love the fresh, springtime design and colors!
