Mother’s Day 5K is celebrating 10 years of fun!

Presented by KC Express, the Mother’s Day 5K is KC’s only run/walk by women, for women.  Held in Corporate Woods in Overland Park, KS, this event draws 4,000 mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends each year.  It’s one of our happiest, healthiest holiday traditions.   This is our tenth annual event, and it’s still awesome after all these years.

Join us on May 11, 2014 at 8 a.m. in Corporate Woods!

Port-a-pot Decorating Contest

April 18, 2014

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: 1) a 4-hour house cleaning from Cleaning Authority, or 2) $25 in movie passes if you enter the kids’ bracket. Yes, you can even volunteer for more than one! Please sign up here and join the fun! More details 2014 Portapot Flyer

Did you see a glow on the horizon last week?  The tiaras have arrived!  We give one to each of our 4,000 participants, and that’s a lot of sparkle. Yours will be waiting for you at Packet Pick Up. Girls of all ages look great in tiaras!

Every MD5K entrant gets a custom-made charm when she crosses our Finish Line. We create a new design each year to match our daisy logo, and have them cast in jewelry-quality pewter. Then we string them on a satin cord necklace just for you.

Some women wear them as is, some add them to a bracelet or key ring. We wanted to give you something different than a medal — something you might actually wear again!

Here are some charms from past years, and a peek at the 2014 model.
