Join Catholic Charities on this 5K run/walk to raise awareness and funds to support families as they work to gain self-sufficiency.
Consider these statistics from Catholic Charities, “In Kansas City and throughout 26 surrounding counties, nearly 16% of individuals live in poverty. It’s not only the homeless or unemployed anymore. Today, many hardworking families are stuck in the cycle of poverty. Single mothers who work lead over 40% of low-income families. The poverty rate is nearly 20% among children under 18. That’s one in five children in our community!”
Past events have included family activities including breakfast, music, face painting, and special visits from Slugerrr and KC Wolf. More information and times for this year’s event forthcoming. The most up-to-date information can be found on the Outpace Poverty website.
