15th Annual Jared Coones Memorial
Thank you to all of the runners and walkers, plus our awesome volunteers and sponsors, and all the families and friends who joined us on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Blackbob Elementary School, Olathe, Kansas for our 15th annual race!
You can check out the race results here.
We had 3,584 runners and walkers this year, which is a record number of participants. We so appreciate your continuing support of this community event which is held in loving memory 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.
