About This Activity

Prepare for a full day of fun with a 5K, cookout, and golf. This is the first of what hopes to be an annual event held by Sterling Meadows. A Run Through the Meadows is a charitable 5K that travels along the Sterling Meadows Golf Course cart path. The path winds over delicate hills, around a pond, and alongside Little Labette Creek in an extended figure-eight. This event will provide bagels, bananas, water and other snacks before and after the race. Be sure to stay for lunch, golf, and beer post-race. Following lunch, Sterling Meadows will be offering beer and free greens fees for 18 holes of golf. Please come join us and help donate to a good cause. This year our proceeds will be going to KVC Behavioral Health of Kansas. Each year a new charity will be selected. This is an all-day event for those who would like to stay post-race, look forward to seeing you there!

Proceeds will go to KVC in three areas of need:

1. Necessities for children coming into foster care: Children often come into care without any items other than what they are wearing. These items generally are: PJ, daily clothing, shoes, underwear, personal hygiene products.
2. Trauma tools: ALL children that come into care have experienced trauma. Many times these trauma’s require therapeutic tools to assist the child in dealing with the trauma. These tools are not funded with state funding or Medicaid and are greatly needed. 
3. Flex funds: These flex funds allow children to participate in youth activities in their community. Dance, football, soccer, basketball, social groups such as 4-H, etc. It has been proven that children that are involved establish a since of belonging, helps develops team work and social skills, makes them feel normal, enhances social/emotional skills that have been lacking in their daily environment.
