Hospital Hill Run Announces Official 2021 Charity Partner in Children’s Mercy

Kansas City, MO

Hospital Hill Run is proud to announce Children’s Mercy as its 2021 official charity partner. Runners will have the option to fundraise in 2021 to raise awareness and funds for the I love Children’s Mercy Fund, which provides advanced medical treatments, compassionate care and world-class research to kids across the region.

“As we approach our 48th year in June, we’re excited to announce the launch of a Hospital Hill Run fundraiser for Children’s Mercy,” said Lisa Drake, Race Director of the Hospital Hill Run. “Runners can now fundraise to earn prizes and create and join teams while participating in our Half Marathon, 10k or 5k.”


A portion of every race entry, along with 100% of funds raised through the Hospital Hill Run fundraiser, will go directly to Children’s Mercy to fuel research and care for children and their families.

Promoting health and wellness through physical activity while giving back to the community is core to Hospital Hill Run’s mission.

“As two long-standing fixtures within our community, we are thrilled to partner with Children’s Mercy, who stands with us in our focus on health and wellness, and makes such an incredible impact for children within our community.”

“With our race born out of the hospital community in 1974, it is only fitting to come back to our roots and focus our charitable efforts on Children’s Mercy, located on our racecourse on Hospital Hill,” said Drake.
