Many local businesses and organizations helped sponsor Kids on Track, offering incentives and prizes to kids as they reached checkpoints on their way to 26.2 miles. Among the sponsors, are: ARC; B & B Bagel; Bob McCosh Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac, Inc.; Chuck E. Cheese; Dairy Queen; Empire Roller Rink; Going Bonkers; HyVee; Lazer Lanes; Missouri Heart Center; The Little Gym; Twaddle Orthodontics and WELLAWARE.
“This year we saw a record number of participants and we can’t wait to cheer on these kids as they complete their summer of healthy activity,” said Jeff Zimmermann, Health Promotions Manager. “We know that exposing our youth to exercise at an early age can create positive habits for the rest of their lives.”
