BSHS student’s 5k to benefit charity

October 30, 2012

A 5k run next week, organized by a Bonner Springs High School senior, will benefit children in need through an organization called Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus.

A part of his senior project, T.J. Kimbrough-French is organizing the “Keep it Moving, Brough” 5,000-meter run/walk at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Shelter F in Wyandotte County Park. Registration will take place 8:30-9:30 a.m. before the run, and awards and prizes will be offered at 11:30 a.m. The event also will include a one-mile Fun Run.

Registration is $10 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for children aged 10 and under. Proceeds benefit Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus, a nonprofit that provides food and school supplies for poverty-stricken children in Belize and also organizes mission trips to the country. T-shirts for the organization also will be available for $5.
