Team Children's Mercy races for the kids who are racing against time

Rock the Parkway start line

Team Children’s Mercy brings together those who love to run, bike, explore and more, to help fuel the ground-breaking research, world-class care and advanced healthcare delivered to children across the region each and every year.

Athletes from across the Kansas City region and beyond are invited to set up personal fundraising pages and raise funds for kids while they train and race. Join families like Kevin’s who channel their Children’s Mercy experience and give back through race support.

“Children’s Mercy gave our family so much that I want to give back… Team Children’s Mercy represents an opportunity to put our arms around an organization that has their arms around so many families and so many children in our region. And that’s why I support Team Children’s Mercy," said Kevin Wade, a Children’s Mercy parent.
