Annual 5k

5K ASL for ALL 2023 flyer 5.3.jpg


Join us in our FIRST annual ASL for All 5K Run/Walk fundraiser to foster Olathe as a "Shared Signing Community"!  Shared signing communities are localities where both Deaf and non-Deaf community members use a shared visual language to communicate with one another.  Non-Signers are welcomed!

This FIRST annual ASL for ALL 5K Run/Walk fundraiser will take place on the Indian Creek Trail leading from and returning to Frontier Park.  Following the 5K race, there will be two Fun-Runs for children at the park in conjunction with an ASL Festival area offering booths.  ASL Performances will be provided at conclusion of Awards Ceremony.  Coffee, water and refreshments will be available for free to registered participants.


All proceeds from this event will be split between the Kansas School for the Deaf Endowment Association (KSDEA) and the Museum of Deaf History, Arts & Culture (MDHAC) in support of their missions in fostering shared signing communities.
