Soccer Day 5K Helps Raise Autism Awareness
On May 15, the Kansas City Wizards hosted their first 5K to benefit Autism Speaks. Among the many runners were a class of students , who have autism, from Gardner Edgerton High School (GEHS) in Gardner, Kan., who trained for a month and a half. The students, featured in this video, wore the number “304,” which is their classroom number. Following the race, the same lucky students did the coin toss and presented medals to the race winners at the Wizards’ autism awareness game.
Thank you to all the runners, volunteers, Ponch from Mix 93.3, Jimmy Conrad with the KC Wizards, Missouri Rep. Jason Grill and especially the Kansas City Wizards organization for hosting this event to support the Kansas City autism community.
