5K for the Fight

The second annual Walk Kansas 5K for the Fight and Family Fun Walk will be held May 6, 2017 on the beautiful K-State campus in Manhattan! During 2016, the inaugural year, we raised $1,025 for cancer research and the Johnson Cancer Research Center at K-State. They will be the beneficiary of our profits again this year. Stay tuned for more details about the event and how to register.



Celebrating Success!

I was more motivated to keep moving because of your program. It always gets me off the couch from a cold winter to move, move, move! I lost 10 lbs. and feel so much better. Thank you for the program. Keep it up! I look forward to it every year. Coffey County
