KCPS Participates in Head for the Cure 5K Walk/Run


Kansas City Public Schools administrators, principals, teachers and staff participated in the annual Head for the Cure 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, August 26. The KCPS Wellness Program sponsored the opportunity for employees to participate in the Walk/Run at no cost to the employee.

“We are All In representing Team KCPS at the Head For the Cure 5k Run/Walk,” Assistant Superintendent Lateshia Woodley said.

“Thanks to KCPS for the opportunity to run for the Head for the Cure 5K,” Wheatley Elementary teacher Alyssa Gandy said.

Trailwoods Principal Leah Starr participated as well. “It was a great race,” Starr said.

The mission of Head for the Cure is to raise awareness and funding to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. The first Head for the Cure 5K was held in Kansas City in 2003. Since then, more than 115,000 people have joined the efforts to defeat brain cancer.
