Grene Vision Group Sponsoring Event to Support Kansas Family Physicians

For the second consecutive year, Grene Vision Group will be a major sponsor for the “Let’s Move, Kansas” 5K run/1.5 mile walk on Saturday, October 8 at Sedgwick Let's Move Kansas LogoCounty Park in Wichita. The event benefits the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the philosophy of family medicine, research, and education of Kansas Family Physicians. The KAFP-Foundation supports the future of family medicine by:

  • providing medical students the opportunity to learn about family medicine in a rural setting;
  • sending medical students to national meetings to gain experience for future practice in Kansas;
  • giving medical students and residents the opportunity to present scientific posters at the meeting; and providing residents the opportunity to participate in an international mission.

Funds raised also benefit the Student and Resident Poster Contest, Rural Family Medicine Practice and Research Program, Family Medicine Interest Group grants, scholarships to the National Conference by AAFP for Medical Students and Residents, AFP-F Hostetter Student Award, the Carol A. Johnson, MD Family Medicine International Mission Scholarship, Kansas Career Opportunities Conferences and the Faces in Family Medicine Program.

The USATF-certified 5K run is set for 8:30 am and the walk at 9:15. Cost is $40 and will increase to $45 on the day of race. Participants receive an exclusive Let’s Move Kansas T-shirt and goody bag with registration. Novice and experienced runners are welcome, and bring the whole family. All children who finish will receive a medal, and cash prizes will be awarded for top run finishers.
