Walk, Run, or Ride — it's all combined!
Heartspring's CARE Walk and PedalFest have been Wichita staples for a combined 30 years. We have chosen to take a new direction in 2021 by combining these two events into CAREfest. Not only will the two pillar events remain, but we are adding in new and exciting elements to benefit all of Heartspring.
See below for more information how to sign up to walk, ride, run, and participate in the car show.
If you're interested in enjoying music, food trucks, and family fun, check out our Activities page.
Kick off Heartspring’s CAREfest with the CARE Walk!
Join us on the Heartspring campus to walk and advocate for children and families in the Wichita special needs community. Dress up in your best costume or favorite T-shirt and make a team sign to be entered into our sign contest. You can start a fundraising team or join as an individual. Don’t forget to purchase a general admission wristband to enjoy the family fun, music, and entertainment throughout the two-day festival.
Wichita riders have been riding and raising funds for Heartspring’s clients and families for 17 years!
Whether you’re a seasoned pro or looking for a leisurely ride, we’ve got you covered. Our ride options include bike paths, road, and gravel routes. Registration for PedalFest includes general admission for all of the family fun, food trucks, music, and entertainment throughout the two days.
Start times vary by route. Click Event Details for more information. All routes, except gravel, include support and gear (SAG) stops.
Runners and walkers — join us on the 5K!
Lace up your running shoes and show your support by participating in our 5K Run. Try to beat your best 5K time, or enjoy a leisurely run (or walk!) around the Heartspring campus. Registration for the 5K also includes general admission for all of the family fun, food trucks, music, and entertainment throughout the two days.
Rev up your engines for our classic car show!
