We are excited to partner with Kansas City's science center, Science City as the 2017 Rock the Parkway beneficiary! Science City is a modern science center in Kansas City’s restored Union Station that features interactive exhibits and offers a hands-on experience that’s so much fun you won’t realize how much you’re learning.
Contributions to Science City from Rock the Parkway have funded the “Get in the Action” exhibit that opened in September 2012. “Get in the Action” is an immersive, projection-screen interactive exhibit in which motion trails follow your body’s movements while you follow a coach through a variety of activities ranging from tai chi to basketball and more. The animation gets visitors excited to move.
We are proud to offer another Rock the Parkway Family Weekend at Science City on April 8 and 9. As a Rock the Parkway participant or volunteer, you and up to four family members can get in FREE just by showing your race bib or volunteer confirmation at Union Station ticketing at the time of purchase.
Rock the Parkway supports Girls on the Run Serving Greater Kansas City by offering free entries to runners and walkers who sign up for their SoleMates program intending to participate in the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon. SoleMates are men and women who raise money for their organization while training for a race, triathlon or other event. Each SoleMate agrees to raise a fundraising minimum and the amount raised stays in the greater Kansas City area to provide financial assistance for girls that otherwise could not participate in their program. For more information about becoming a SoleMate, please visit their website at www.gotrkc.org/solemates.
