Run for Kicks is hosted by Panathinaikos Soccer Schools (PAO), the official Youth Academy of Panathinaikos FC, the professional team in Athens, Greece. We are the only European Youth Academy in Missouri, and one of the few European clubs to have official youth academies in North America. We promote outstanding sportsmanship and self-discipline on and off the field, and believe in giving back to the community. We are passionate about the sport and properly developing players both as players and as people. Following our 100+ year tradition of sports excellence, we work to leave positive footprints in each child’s development.
Are you a 5K veteran? Is the pounding of pavement and concrete beginning to wear you down this season? Looking for something fresh and green? Look no further, Run for Kicks is here. This second annual timed grass-y 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is a family friendly event and open for all age groups to attend! After the race we invite everyone to stick around and enjoy family activities (i.e. face painting and kids crafts), vendors, as well as a live band.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will continue to help the club deliver this development to our youth and strengthen fundamentals that can be used on and off the soccer field. It allows us to keep our high quality training competitively priced, while also allowing us the financial flexibility to offer financial assistance to families in need... So anyone with a passion for the game, can play.
