Martini Madness- “The Olive Run”
20 Jul 2014
Check out this fun event on Aug 17! It’s a run to remember Olive Drew, a great lady and KC Express member, who loved running from the instant she started– at age 80! She ran ’til she was 93, expanding the age range in every local race she entered, and she took home some gold at the National Senior Olympics, too. Here’s a photo of the cute t-shirt for the 2nd annual event. This is an afternoon trail run, with post-race libations available for purchase at The Other Place, a friendly bar and grill in Olathe.

Helping others do what we love

Here are just a few of the KCE members who are volunteering as mentors for the Women’s Training Team at Shawnee Mission Medical Center on Tuesday nights for 6-weeks, April 1 thru May 6, from 6-7:30 pm.
