Are you a road warrior or just happy to get the steps in from the couch to your fridge? Either way, this is the event for you! Get the whole family involved, from tiny tots to four-legged furballs. Hop on that treadmill that’s collecting dust. Or dress up in fun costumes. Make the experience what you want it to be – just keep up your physical distancing! You have from May 19-May 25 (11:59 p.m. CT) to complete 3.1 miles. Choose your favorite route to walk or jog, whether it's indoors or out. 

Instead of awarding medals to the fastest participants, we're celebrating a whole host of achievements: Silliest costume, most creative indoor and outdoor routes, silliest sidekick, top fundraising individual and team, and more. Participants also receive a race T-shirt.

Individuals register for $25, while teams of 4 or more pay $20 per person. You can sign up until May 25. To request a team discount code, contact

All proceeds benefit Family Promise of Lawrence, a nonprofit working with families experiencing homelessness to get back into sustainable housing. FPL has been open throughout the COVID pandemic. It is currently assisting 56 local families, including 123 children, to ensure they remain in or find sustainable housing.

Description: GRAMMY Award-winning producer David Foster is embarking on an extensive North American tour beginning January of 2020 and ending at the Kauffman Center on May 19. The tour, An Intimate Evening with David Foster: Hitman Tour, is an extension of his highly successful and sold-out 2019 tour. Foster, who is one of the biggest musical forces of our time, created this jaw-dropping musical extravaganza that includes the greatest hits of his career. Joining the 16-time GRAMMY Award-winning writer/producer this time around will be singer/actress Katharine McPhee. Katharine joins David fresh off her Broadway and West End run of the hit Broadway musical Waitress. Katharine will join David for a number of his well-known songs including The Prayer.
