The Deal

  • $19 for registration for one to the PJ5K ($40 value)

At 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 7, participants dressed in their finest pajamas race around the PJ5K course in Overland Park. All participants will receive a Haitian-made Global Orphan T-shirt. The top three finishers in each age group will win a customized PJ5K medal. Read the FAQs here.

The proceeds from the 5K will be used for orphan prevention and helping Haitian kids receive an education. The Global Orphan Project, Colonial Presbyterian Church’s Student Ministries, and Crossfirst Bank are partnering together to help achieve these goals.

PJ5K

Like a job as a mattress salesman, the PJ5K pajama-themed 5K race is on its face just an opportunity for people to wear pajamas outside of their homes and feel accepted by society. But in reality, it's so much more than that. It's a chance for participants to help Haiti. The race partners with the Global Orphan Project—an orphan care ministry intent on preventing orphanhood in Haiti and boosting Haiti's economy with its GO Exchange initiative.

During the race, people of all ages don pajamas and compete in 5K and Junior Jammie runs, which range from 50 yards to a quarter mile. Runners will receive a GO T-shirt and a discount on GO pajama pants, the proceeds of which will feed one Haitian child for a month. On top of everything, general proceeds from the day's events will also go toward the ministry's noble projects.

Customer Reviews

Very fun! Lots of good food and goodies provided afterwards!

The PJ5K is a family-friendly event. My son (11) did better than he expected. My daughter (8) finished without tears (yay!!) and my littlest was very proud of himself for the Jammy Jog. Soft landing for a former-runner mommy. Groupon = great deal!
