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(c)(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 heard and responded to over 12,000 stories of people in distress and provided over $80,000 to people in need, 10,000 people received free clothing and thousands more received free furniture, household and personal care items.

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!

The KDC is a dog-friendly event - participants and pets are welcome but must be on a lease.
