About the Event

MCC-Blue River - Independence MO - April 13, 2019

MCC-Blue River All for the Children

Join us for the 8th annual MCC-Blue River All for the Children event.  This event features a 5K run/walk, followed by the Eggstravaganza!  At the Eggstravaganza, we feature Public Safety Institute self-defense classes for kids, child ID kits, entertainment provided by MCC drama students, and many many other fun activities.  Then last but not least, the end of the Eggstravaganza features an over 10,000 Egg Hunt!

 

HISTORY

The Annual All for the Children event is the brainchild of MCC-Blue River instructor Kim Glackin with assistance from fellow instructors. MCC-Blue River also partners with various business partners around the KC Metro, specifically Independence and Blue Springs, along with the students of the Independence School District’s Little Blue Elementary School. The event is based on an idea Kimberly Glackin got from a similar event in California.

Volunteering

MCC-Blue River All for the Children welcomes community volunteers.  If you or your organization are interested in volunteering at the All for the Children event, please contact Kimberly Glackin, Faculty-Psychology at 816.604.6658.

Safety

Safety is the upmost important, so MCC-Blue River asks, for the safety of our event-goers, that guests do not bring pets, glass or alcohol to All for the Children.

There are factors that contribute to child abuse, including poverty, financial stresses, lack of knowledge among adults about parenting skills and child development and the use of drugs and alcohol around children. About 80 percent of them are under the age of four. Our community can protect its children by educating parents about parenting and child development, and by building community support for children and their families.
