Thanks to the support of participants, sponsors and volunteers, the eighth annual RUN NKC Schools 5K raised $11,000 for the Education Foundation and PTO, PTA, PTSA and booster club organizations at district schools. More than $1,800 is being shared with these school organizations in 2015, bringing the total shared with schools to nearly $22,000 since the 5K began in 2008.
