About This Event

Please join us on Saturday, September 29, 2018 for the Annual RUN KDC 5K & Walk. The run will take place at Mayor’s Riverfront Park, 251 Mills St in Kalamazoo.

In an effort to bring the community together to support the efforts of KDC, we are looking for sponsorships – individuals, families and businesses are encouraged to be a part of the Annual RUN KDC 5K & Walk 

KDC is a 501©(3) non-profit corporation. Run KDC 5K is a 5k Run/Walk fundraiser for the Kalamazoo Deacons Conference (KDC), an agency that has been uncompromisingly serving the underprivileged in the community for more than 50 years. All funds raised from the race, goes a long way to help those in emotional, financial, and spiritual crisis.

All KDC services and programs are offered free of charge to the guests. During the last five years, KDC served over 15,700 people in need, donated $80,730 to people in financial crisis, assisted 2,743 guests with direct response services, provided 3,728 people free clothing. Hundreds of guests have received free furniture, household and personal care.

All supporters can participate through volunteering, running or walking. Unlike other marathons, the Run KDC 5K & Walk is not just about how fast you can finish the race, but how your support strengthens the Kalamazoo community.  

We thank you in advance for your support! KDC – Making A Difference!
