The Rock4Kids "Polar Bear Run/Walk" is the second in our series of three runs for kids during the 2012-2013 academic year. Brought to you by Bass Pro Shops and Care to Learn, the event is open to kids pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. Families may run/walk together but they must all register if everyone wishes to receive a t-shirt and medal. Parents may run/walk with their kids without registering but parents will not receive a medal or shirt.
Kid';s may choose to run one of three distances and don';t need to choose a distance upon registration. Distances will need to be chosen at check in the morning of the run/walk.
We are happy to work with Missouri State University and their new Bill R. Foster Recreation Center staff for this event.
Finishers receive Rock4Kids medals and all participants receive short sleeve cotton t-shirts.
