2nd Annual
Dash for disABILITIES
5K Walk/Run

The Inaugural Dash for disABILITIES KRA 5K Walk/Run was established during our 2017 Annual Conference.  The race started and finished in the beautiful Smothers Park located on the riverfront of downtown Owensboro, Kentucky. This evening race will begin at 6:00 pm in front of McConnell Plaza and will follow a relatively flat course.  Runners and walkers will proceed down West 2nd St., past the Owensboro Convention Center, O.Z. Tyler Distillery, and English Park to finish back at the Plaza.  The 5K Walk/Run is being held in conjunction with the 2017 Kentucky Rehabilitation Association Annual Training Conference.

This year's 2018 2nd Annual Dash for disABILITIES date is TBA.  Please stay tuned for the updated location date and time.

The Kentucky Rehabilitation Association (KRA) is a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization comprised of professionals across Kentucky who advocate and support individuals with disabilities seeking employment.  KRA continuously strives to support individuals with disabilities toward their employment goals which can include post-secondary training assistance.  In an effort to facilitate our efforts the KRA Scholarship Committee was developed in 1992 to assist individuals with a $500-$1000 scholarship towards an accredited institute of their choice.  With the continual increase in college tuition, the scholarship has become more valuable than ever.


Traditionally, a statewide golf tournament had been organized to raise funds for the scholarship; however, in 2017, the Scholarship Committee elected to hold a statewide 5K Walk/Run as the primary fundraiser for the scholarship.  Each year there have been approximately 80 or more individuals who participate in this event and we are hoping to have that many or more for this new endeavor.  KRA would greatly appreciate your attendance, financial support and/or donated items for this great cause.  Items are needed for goody bags and prizes.  To become a sponsor please fill out the sponsorship form and send it to the address listed.  If you need additional information please do not hesitate to contact me.
