The Kentucky Rehabilitation Association (KRA), the professional organization for those in the field of vocational rehabilitation, would like to announce their inaugural KRA Dash for Disabilities Walk/Run will be held Tuesday, September 12, 2017, at McConnell Plaza (Smothers Park), W. Veterans Blvd Owensboro, KY  42301.

This 5K Walk/Run is being held in conjunction with the 2017 Annual KRA Training Conference which will be held at the Owensboro Convention Center. KRA is a member organization that promotes ethical and state of the art practice in rehabilitation with the goal of the personal and economic independence of persons with disabilities.

Entry fees from the 5K will be used to provide educational scholarships to students seeking a degree in a rehabilitation program.

This evening race will begin at 6pm in front of McConnell Plaza and will follow a relatively flat course. Runners and walkers will proceed down West 2nd Street, past O.Z. Tyler Distillery and English Park, and the Owensboro Convention Center to finish back at the Plaza.

Finishers will have the opportunity to view the 7pm sunset as the award ceremony begins.

“This is a great opportunity to demonstrate a commitment to increased workforce participation opportunities for those with disabilities,” said Jason Cole, KRA President Elect.

Race will happen rain or shine.

Registration is $25/individal.
