Yes, I want to contribute towards birthday!
About the Party
As you know, we held our grand finale Birthday Party event in March and now, we’re launching our new initiative to support Children’s Mercy Hospital - the Tyr Run Club.
The Tyr Run Club is open to all ages and will include monthly walk/run events, as well as a 5K/10K. Those who are in the area can participate with us each month at the Memorial Stadium track, but we’ll also have a “virtual” event for those too far away to join in person.
The first “meet” for the club is set for Sunday, May 20 from 2-4 p.m. at Harrisonville Memorial Stadium’s track. Families and individuals are encouraged to come and run or walk the track. Kids can work to be a part of the 1-mile, 2-mile and 5K clubs - each with its own prize. Volunteers will also work with kids on goal-setting. Parents and other adults are encouraged to come and begin, or continue, working towards running the annual 5K/10K which will be held in the fall.
Participants can pay as they go for each monthly local event (a minimum donation of $5/per participant) or club membership can be paid in full for $75 (which includes the $35 registration for the annual 5K/10K). Payment can be made at the event, mailed to us at 601 E. Pearl Street, Harrisonville, MO 64701, or completed online at http://give.childrensmercy.org/goto/tyrrunclub.
All donations to the run club will go directly to Children’s Mercy Hospital and specifically the Cade Filer Endowed Fund for Child Life in Hematology/Oncology.
The name - Tyr - has two meanings. Tyr is the mythical Nordic God of War and Justice. Legend has it, when the realm of the Gods was challenged, Tyr was brave enough, and committed enough, to do the right thing even though he knew it would challenge him both physically and mentally in major ways. Tyr also stands for teaching young runners. Part of the goals of the club will be to work with kids on setting goals, taking action to reach those goals, and having accountability partners to help them through it. All under the backdrop of being active, making healthy choices, and having tons of fun along with way.
