Groundhog Run 2011

Did you know that Kansas City is littered with cities underground? Me neither. As it turns out, there are more than 3,000 people who at work for 170 companies 110 ft. to 200 ft. below our city’s surface. The temperature inside “The Caves” stays at a comparatively warm 68-degrees Fahrenheit year-round. (Read more in - TIME

Thus sets the scene for the next Thunder Road Racing Team. The Children’s Therapeutic Learning Center (Children’s TLC) will host its 29TH Annual Groundhog Run.  This run is believed to be the only completely underground 5/10K in the US. Children’s TLC offers evidence-based therapeutic and educational services in a variety of settings to children with and without disabilities. Thunder Road Racing Team is proud to support this worthy organization. In fact, there are a handful of mental health professionals on the TRR team, who know the benefits of providing services at an early age to challenged individuals!
