Mungenast Automotive Family proudly presents our annual Klaas Kids 5K & Family Fun Run. Join us as we take to the streets of Kirkwood to promote family fitness and child safety.
Regardless of whether you run, we encourage you to take advantage of your free child safety kit that includes a photo of your child, DNA collection kit, along with a copy of their digital fingerprint, compliments of the Klaas Kids Foundation.
ABOUT KLAAS KIDS FOUNDATION:
The Klaas Kids Foundation was established in 1994 to give meaning to the death of Marc Klaas's twelve-year-old daughter kidnap and murder victim Polly Hannah Klaas and to create a legacy in her name that would be protective of children for generations to come.
The foundation's goal is to stop crimes against children by promoting parental awareness and child safety tips, providing communities with pro-active steps for creating safer neighborhoods and establishing children's rights by affecting legislation that will protect children.
Utilizing 21st Century technology, the Foundation fingerprints and photographs children, provides their parents with DNA Collection Kits, pro-active child safety information; and a nine-point plan on what to do if children disappear. Since 1994, the Klaas Kids Print-A-Thon has fingerprinted and photographed more than 1,000,000 children at no cost to families and without databasing personal or private information.
Nothing is more important than the safety and protection of our children. The key to their safety is awareness, education and prevention. Please visit www.klaaskids.org for more information.

RACE RULES & REGULATIONS
First and foremost, have fun and enjoy your race, but we have some basic rules that will ensure a safe and smooth race. Participants with baby strollers or joggers will be allowed to participate in both the 5K race and 1-Mile Fun Run. Participants utilizing strollers and joggers should start at the back of the 5K start line. To ensure that you receive an accurate time make sure your race bib, which has the timing tag attached to the back, is clearly visible on the front of your body. We also ask that you line up according to your pace per mile. If you plan to walk the race, please line up near the back of the start. Remember your timing chip does not start until you officially cross the start line. Also, pets (dogs), roller blades, skateboards, bikes, etc. are not allowed in either race.
WEATHER OR DISASTER EMERGENCY:
The event will proceed rain or shine. In the event of severe weather or a disaster that causes the event to be delayed, altered or canceled we suggest you to listen to the announcer at the start/finish line or volunteer staff along the course for special instructions. No refunds will be issued for an event that is delayed, altered or canceled. Any pre-race weather or disaster related information will also be posted on Mungenast.com, as well as Mungenast Automotive Family's Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages.
Entry fees are non-transferable (from one person to another) and non-refundable. No exceptions. If you cannot participate, we will be happy to mail your participant shirt after the race. All requests must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org PRIOR to race weekend. Please include your full name and mailing address.
