For the past 19 years the annual Jared Coones Memorial 5K Pumpkin Run/Walk has celebrated family and community by coming together to honor the lives of Jared and Jayne Coones and their courageous battles against cancer while also raising money to support cancer patients and their families!
They’ve grown from a humble 550 participants in their first year to over 3,600+ participants in 2016 and they have raised over $700,000 with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities! The mission of the Pumpkin Run is not to be the biggest 5K in Kansas City but to be the best family event in the area.
They have seen the vision and passion for this event embraced by thousands of caring volunteers, sponsors and participants; which is evident by the fact that many of their sponsors, participants and volunteers have been with them from the very start. They not only continue to come back but also bring their family and friends with them for incredible growth each year.
Today we welcomed Tom Coones, loving husband, father, and friend to One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning this morning for our technicians’ training to tell his story and explain to us the joy he has for this special day. He also provided us with details on how to register to join this AMAZING event.
As a sponsor for the last 9 years, we continue to support this event and we ask for your support as well. With that being said, we will be collecting any financial contribution during our service/maintenance calls; no obligations of course, however, any donation big or small goes a long way.
We are so glad to have had Tom come in and welcome him back anytime. If you would like more information on the story or the 5K event, you can click on the link and it will direct you to the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PumpkinRun/ OR their website http://www.pumpkinrunwalk.org/
