Pumpkin Fun Run Set for October 19!
The 7th annual Pumpkin Fun Run, sponsored by University of Missouri Children’s Hospital, will begin at 9 a.m. on October 19 at Philips Lake Park in Columbia.
This 1.4-mile run/walk is open to Boone County students grades K-5. Parents and teachers are also encouraged to participate. There is a $10 entry fee for students, which includes a t-shirt and registration packet. Parents and teachers run free (does not include t-shirt).
As an added incentive to participate, students can help win $500 for their school. The three schools in each enrollment category that have the highest percentage of students participate will win $500 for their physical education department.
“We’re excited to host the Pumpkin Fun Run and appreciate the support of MU Children’s Hospital,” said Dave Fox, Show-Me STATE GAMES Executive Director. “The Pumpkin Run encourages kids in our community to take part in an event of health, fitness, family and fun while also building school pride.”
