This year, we're proud to support The Ballard Center, an incredible organization dedicated to making a difference in our community. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to their cause.

Here's what you can expect on the big day:

🏁 Last Man Standing Challenge: It's not your average fun run! Participants will take on a unique "last man standing" style challenge. Your mission? Complete a 1-mile loop within a 20-minute time cap. Finish early? Enjoy some well-deserved rest until the timer resets. Each mile, the time cap decreases by one minute, adding an extra layer of excitement and challenge!


💰 Admission: Your donation is your ticket to join the fun! While the minimum donation is $10, we welcome contributions of any amount. Stay tuned for an email upon sign-up, where we'll share a list of other donation options. Remember, every dollar counts towards making a difference for The Ballard Center.


⏱️ Manual Timing: This event is all about camaraderie and community spirit. Our team will be on hand to manually time each participant, ensuring a fair and fun experience for all.

Ready to make a difference while breaking a sweat? Sign up now to secure your spot in the Animal Kingdom Athletics Charity Fun Run! This event is open to all who want to participate in the charity run and you are not obligated to compete with those who want to challenge themselves. 


Have questions or need more information? Reach out to Daniel Barajas, our owner, at 913-223-3769, or Trey Fink, our manager, at 785-420-0187.


Let's come together, pound the pavement, and show our support for a great cause!

See you at the starting line! 👊🏽👍🏽
