WELCOME TO THE KADE MEYER CELEBRATION RUN
This website is dedicated to KADE MEYER, the son of Mark and Stormy, brother of Kennedy Meyer and friend to many.
The Seventh and final Kade Meyer Celebration Run was held September 16, 2017, at Celebration Park in Gardner, Kansas. Participants of all ages ran in the 5k and 10k as well as Kids 1-Mile Fun Run. Top male and female finishers were presented medals after the race and all children that participated in the Kids Fun Run received a special medal. This FOREVER AWESOME event was dedicated to honor the life of KADE MEYER.
Kade Matthew Meyer lost his life at the precious age of 7½ in September, 2010, when he was killed by a car outside of his Elementary school. Kade was a happy, healthy, fun loving and compassionate little boy that always had a smile on his face. Kade loved using his hands building legos, playing guitar hero and playing sports, especially football, basketball and baseball. He was involved in the Gardner Park and Rec sports programs and an active youth member of the King of Kings Lutheran Church.The KADE MEYER Celebration Run was established in 2011. All funds raised and donations given support the Kade Meyer Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is intended to assist students in need of financial support for his or her education after high school. An annual scholarship will be awarded to a Gardner-Edgerton High School senior(s) in Kade’s memory through the class of 2021, Kade’s graduation year.
27 STUDENTS HAVE RECEIVED A TOTAL OF $90,000 IN SCHOLARSHIP MONEY SINCE 2011! AS KADE WOULD SAY WHEN HE WAS EXCITED, "THIS IS AWESOME!"
