Presented by: Equity Initiative, Inc.

Run Into Summer 5K proceeds go towards our youth development organization, Equity Initiative, Inc. which is a Monday to Thursday after-school program for middle school and high school-age youth in Kansas.


Equity Initiative, Inc. is dedicated to preparing young people for the world and changing the course of their lives. Five ways we do this are: offering FREE groups and workshops on life skills development, encouraging social and emotional learning, providing entrepreneurial exposure, arranging Media Arts engagement, and supplying FREE tutoring to middle school and high school-age students! 

Equity Initiative, Inc. has an exclusive location, The Activity Lounge (Address: 1608 E. Waterman St. 67211), which is a safe place for teenagers to hang, learn, and grow Monday to Thursday from 6:30pm-9:00pm. Equity Initiative, Inc. values EQUITY, it's in OUR name. We work hard daily to identify and remove barriers that prevent marginalized youth from reaching their full potential.

Equity Initiative, Inc.'s mission is to provide young people in marginalized communities with positive life skills, resources, and guidance in order to ensure the success of their future!

"Giving each youth the resources they uniquely need, because one way doesn't serve ALL."

Join us in this Summer 5K!
