Sophie’s Run @ Lake Waukomis is a 501c3, organized to honor the life of Sophie Edwards, a citizen of Lake Waukomis and student of the Park Hill School District, who passed away April 29, 2010.
Sophie's Run is a 5K-ish (3.4 mile) road race and features a serene setting with rolling hills and a beautiful finish on the dam with US flags soaring overhead and a refreshing water view. It features an awesome community that cheers on the runners at every turn and a wonderful group of volunteer citizens who help to make this race an organized and fun event. It is a great family event featuring children's entertainers, children's activities, a kid's dash, and team competition.

This fundraising that they do, benefits children in surrounding communities to assist them in obtaining technology that will help them in school and in life. The goal of Sophie's Run is to provide children who have special needs with the funding means to more effectively communicate.
