    Don't miss out on the 5th Annual ICT Burger Battle. New this year - the battle will be part of ICT Bloktoberfest at Union Station! ICT Burger Battle is Wichita's juiciest throwdown. On this day of glorious, mouth-watering deliciousness, Wichita restaurants will battle it out to determine who can make the BEST, most bomb diggity, thebombdotcom, burger in all of Ta-Town! The best part? You, my friends, get to sample all the burgers and vote for the People's Choice Winner. You're welcome. For $25, you'll be able to enjoy the best burgers in town. Proceeds from the Battle of the Burger will go directly to the programs and services KETCH provides to nearly 500 adults with developmental & intellectual disabilities each year. 

    Walk a Block in My Shoes is NEW to Bloktoberfest this year! The event will take place on Saturday, October 14th at Waterwalk from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. After the race, we encourage you to stick around and partake in all the Bloktoberfest activities! This event includes a 5K and a 1 Mile Fun Run! All proceeds from the walk will go to KETCH and support adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You can choose the basic package for $15-$25 or purchase with two Burger Battle tickets for $35-$45, depending on the length of your race.
