Please join us for our 16th annual event on Saturday, October 4, 2014!
Welcome to our 16th year! Our mission is to honor the lives of Jared and Jayne Coones. Jared was 10 years old when he passed away on October 5, 1998 after his courageous battle with leukemia. Jared’s mom, Jayne, passed away on December 17, 2006 after a difficult fight with breast cancer. The Jared Coones Memorial 5K Pumpkin Run/Walk celebrates their lives and raises funds for local organizations that provide support for cancer care and research, including The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Children’s Mercy Hospital.
We had 3,584 runners and walkers in 2013, which is a record number of participants! Join us in 2014 and make it our best event yet.
