17th annual Jared Coones Memorial Pumpkin 5k Run / Walk

Thank You to the 3,505 runners and walkers and all the spectators that joined us at our 16th annual event on Saturday, October 4, 2014!

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.
