Come take a walk with your friends and colleagues to see the beauty that Overland Park has to offer! We will start in the Lunch Room (or right outside assuming it’s nice!) and head south along Metcalf Ave. Making our way down to 103rd St., we will then escape the cars and roads to continue our walk on the beautifully winding Indian Creek Trail. Take in the scenery and nature as you walk alongside Indian Creek amongst the tall trees! Be sure to listen carefully for your favorite birds singing, and keep your eyes peeled for funny squirrels or magnificent deer. Stop at Lamar Ave. and turn back for the 5k distance or continue on all the way to Roe park (and back) for the 10k distance. For those brave enough, after lunch we will head back out to do the full circuit again to hit our 20k distance.
Choose your distance:
5km 10km 20km
We will all meet in the lunch area at noon for pizza and to celebrate the walk. 20k distance walkers will meet after lunch to finish the walk.
We chose RMHCKC as our partner last year in our first year participating in Walk the World. This year we will be continuing our partnership in hopes of providing even more families with the support needed to care for their sick children. At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City, we keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need. Our three Houses adjacent to Children’s Mercy Hospital and Ronald McDonald Family Room, we create places of respite where families can rally around and support one another. While we are near Children’s Mercy downtown, we serve all pediatric hospitals in Kansas City.

In addition, Informa will be making donations to local charities, click here to learn how to gain more for your charity. We encourage our colleagues to donate $15 to the office charity when registering for the walk.
