There will also be a 1 mile benefit Walk for Thought, which will take place beginning in the Loose Park Rose Garden area. Proceeds from the race benefit the Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City, who provide vital programs offering resources, support and education for survivors, loved ones and professionals in our community. Since its inception the run has raised more than $2 million to help all people with brain injury and the professionals who treat them. Click here for more information or to register.
