Trolley Run features 11,000 runners/walkers and hundreds of volunteers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - If you ask some kids what sound the Easter Bunny makes - they might tell you he beeps.

Wednesday was the beeper Easter egg hunt for the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired.

The special plastic eggs have beepers inside.

It's a 20-year plus tradition that never gets old.

After the kids find the beeper eggs, they trade them for candy and toys.

The next big event benefiting CCVI is the Trolley Run on Sunday, April 29.

This year, the non-profit still needs people to volunteer as course monitors on race morning.

You can register as a volunteer online at the website for the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired.

Or, call Annie Palmer at 816.830.7849.

Here are several ways CCVI says volunteers can help:

Areas of greatest need:

Course Monitors: Keep runners and walkers safe by keeping the course clear of traffic. You can bring your lawn chairs and coffee and they provide a morning snack.

Packet Preparation April 26, 9:15 a.m. and 1 p.m .shifts: Prepare for Packet Pick-Up at Ward Parkway Center that evening. Fold shirts, label bib numbers and chips and assemble runner/walker bags.

Packet Pick-Up April 27, 9:15 a.m. shift and April 28, 4 p.m. shift: Distribute bib numbers, chips, runner/walker t-shirts, bags and instructions at Ward Parkway Center

Kids' Run: Help keep the little ones on course April 29 or assist with games and activities in the Kids' Run area at Mill Creek Park on the Plaza.

Kids' Run Packet Pick Up (April 26, 27 and 28): Hand out runner bags to the kids. When registering, be sure to specify you want to help with the Kids' Run Table in the "notes" section.
