About the Groundhog Run

Groundhog Run benefiting the children of Ability KC has raised more than $4.75 million for children with special needs since its inception in 1983. The race is one of very few 5K races, and believed to be the only 100% underground sanctioned 10K race in the nation. With a consistent temperature of 65 to 68 degrees, the Hunt Midwest SubTropolis is the ideal venue for runners from all over the country to compete in this annual winter event.

Annually, more than 3,000 individuals and families receive services for outpatient medical rehabilitation, therapeutic preschool, and employment services at Ability KC. In addition, multiple specialty programs and services are offered, such as neuropsychology and rehabilitation psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), corporate partnerships for employment opportunities and much more. Ability KC is proud to celebrate more than 70 years since the beginnings of each agency in 1947. Thousands of lives have been changed and celebrations of successes have occurred due to the generosity of the Kansas City community.
