A huge thank you to our continuing individual, corporate, and Pillars of the Foundation sponsors for
their faithful support of our eighteenth Run for Excellence. Your support is critical to the success of not
only our run but our mission to “support and enhance our schools.”
The Raytown Educational Foundation held its eighteenth Run for Excellence Saturday, October 21, 2017.
The run had 259 registrants including those “virtual runners” who slept in, but wear their run t-shirt just
like the actual participants. This year’s run was truly a family affair with several parent-child medalists
who finished with a 1st , 2nd , or 3rd place. Those parent-child medalists included: Anna & Noah Wiley,
Shannon & Makenzie Jakes, Staci & Davin Mathis, and a 3 medal family – Tara & Hallie & Levi McConnel. The run also had several sibling medalists: Luke and Seth Markley, Addi & Tate Baker, and Halle & Levi McConnel.
Our youngest participant, via stroller, was Kamdyn Lantsberger whose parents, Brice and Courtney are
both Raytown Quality Schools educators. Daddy Brice even medaled with a second place finish. (He
was not the one pushing the stroller.) Thanks to all our participants, sponsors, and volunteers for
another successful run.
