Each year, the Lawrence Memorial Endowment Association hosts a 5K run/walk in Eudora. This year, the 5K will take place on Saturday, June 22. This is the first race of a series of three 5K events in support of the Endowment Association. The second race will be held in Tonganoxie on July 20 and then the series wraps up in Baldwin City on August 17.
The run will start at the Eudora Parks and Rec Center, 1638 Elm Street. Registration for the run begins at 7:00 AM with the race beginning at 8:00 AM.
One half of the net proceeds raised in Eudora will be donated back to the community in the form of a health wellness grant. The 2013 Eudora Grant Recipients are the Eudora Recreation Commission and the Eudora Middle & High School Cross Country Track and Field teams.
The cost to enter the race is $25 or you can register for all three events for $55. Awards will be presented for the top male and female finishers. Some of the interesting alternative categories that will receive awards and recognition are the team with the first three finishers, the team with the most members and the team sporting “creative” race apparel.
The LMH Endowment Association assists the hospital and the surrounding communities with medical education, research and hospital programs.
