Race Description

The Kickin' Kawasaki 5K is a family friendly, kid-oriented race/walk dedicated to growing awareness and raising money for Kawasaki Disease. 

The race has a theme of “kool socks” so racers and volunteers will be encouraged to dress up their socks to show support of KD! Prizes will be given to the top male, female, youth runners, and for the “koolest”, funniest, most original socks.

Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, is a serious illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Although about 80 percent of patients are under five years of age, older children and teenagers can also get KD, but this is uncommon. KD is more common in boys than girls, and the majority of cases are diagnosed in the winter and early spring. It is not contagious.

 

Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease involving the coronary arteries. Timely diagnosis and treatment (which usually includes intravenous gamma globulin) is highly effective in preventing coronary complications.
