KCE St. Pat’s Centipede Wins AGAIN
KC Express took top honors in the centipede contest AGAIN this year at the 2015 St. Pat’s Run in Westport. Our “Irish Setters” featured a volleyball theme, with net and ball connecting the red-headed wigs, knee-pads, and green bun-hugger shorts worn by the KC Express team. Thanks to everyone who wore these awesome outfits to promote our club! Special thanks to costume designer and team organizer Melissa Hart for the brilliant idea!
Help others do what you love
Give back some of the benefits of exercise that you have come to know and love! We are looking for enthusiastic KCE members to volunteer as mentors and pacers for the Women’s Training Team at Shawnee Mission Medical Center on Tuesday nights for 6 weeks, March 31 thru May 5, from 6-8:30 pm. Every year this program helps about 300 women get ready for our Mother’s Day 5K. It’s one of our most important activities, and it’s also one of the most rewarding! Volunteer here or contact Tracey W for more info.
Free CPR class for Members — Sign up by Feb. 24
KCE is offering free CPR training to members during our regular meeting on March 3. The class will be taught by Kansas City First Aid and there is no test. We’ll have a light dinner at 6:30 and training will begin at 7:00.
You must sign up to attend! E-mail Tracey Weatherly by February 24 to reserve your spot. (KCE will pay the $35 class fee as long as you show up after signing up.)
And the winner is… Ginger Snawerdt
Each year KC Express members nominate one of our own for the Phyllis Bahner Pacesetter Award, honoring a member who has made a special contribution to our club.
Ginger Snawerdt, our membership chair, updates the club roster, welcomes members and guests at nearly every meeting, and recently finished the enormous task of setting up our online membership process. Plus, she’s served on the MD5K race committee and helped with the SMH Training Team for the last 10 years. Ginger pitches in wherever needed, and she does it all with a smile. Thank you, Ginger, for your hard work – and your enthusiasm!
April 7: Instead of the usual meeting, join us at Shawnee Mission Medical Center for the Women’s Training Team from 6-7:30 pm. We would love to see many KCE members out supporting the new walkers and runners. Details: Shawnee Mission Medical Center, I-35 & 75th Street. (Par Course on the East Side), 6-7:30 pm.
