Our mission at Bodies Race Company is to make a positive impact in our community. We do this by providing a healthy activity for the whole family and benefiting local charities. We want everyone to have a great time and invest in their health but we are also calling on our great community to help those in need. The Easter Escapade aims to be a blessing to Rachel House. Rachel House is a Pregnancy Resource Center dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who seek assistance when dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. They have locations in Lees Summit, the Northland and Kansas City.
To help support Rachel House we will be collecting diapers (newborn or size 1), wipes and baby bottles. Please bring them to packet pickup, race day or even to our studio any time before the race.
