Thanks to the support of sponsors, participants and volunteers, the ninth annual NKC Schools 5K raised more than $11,000. The event benefited the Education Foundation and PTA, PTSA, PTO and booster clubs at district schools. More than $2,500 has been shared with school organizations in 2016, bringing the total to nearly $25,000 since the 5K began in 2008.
Matt Sulzen, an Eastgate Middle School art teacher, captured first place with a time of 17:55.55. For the second year, the top female at 20:08.70 was Jessica Montague, a fourth-grade teacher at Clardy Elementary School. For more results, visit http://therunningwellstore.com/events/results.

When signing up for the 5K, participants could designate a school organization to receive $5 of their registration fee. Schools also competed for the highest percentage of participants based on enrollment. North Kansas City High School won the high school competition, and New Mark placed first among middle schools. Each earned an extra $250. Rounding out the top four elementary school spots were Bell Prairie ($250), Golden Oaks ($150), Topping ($100) and Briarcliff ($50).
