RUN FOR CHILDREN’S MERCY HOSPITAL!

Giving back to the Kansas City medical community is the root of who we are at the Hospital Hill Run. By taking part in the Hospital Hill Run, a portion of your entry, along with 100% of your fundraising efforts, go to the I Love Children’s Mercy Fund. Make your miles count in 2021 by becoming an individual or team fundraiser.
