About This Activity

Kids love permission to get MESSY - that is why we are hosting the SECOND annual Messy Day Dash!

100% of the proceeds from the Messy Day Dash! will benefit Make-A-Wish Nebraska

Besides obstacles you may even...

Sling spaghetti, crack an egg on your head, army crawl through mud, brave a shaving cream battle, ride the paint slip-n-slide, face the "walk of worms", climb hay bail hill and more!

Once registered you have unlimited access to the course~until the end of the event.

At the end of the obstacle and messy encounter course you will get hosed off by a Springfield Fire Fighter - how cool is that?

Bring some extra cash (you might want to put it in a baggie) for food at noon and some other extreme mess opportunities! 


Please tell everyone you know to join in the FUN! All ages are welcome at this event!

Event host family and residents of Springfield:

Dave, Angie Nathan (PlatteviewSenior) and Ellie (Platteview Freshman)

Nathan is a Stage III Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer SURVIVOR! He battled cancer his Freshman year at Platteview High School. He is a Nebraska Make A Wish WISH recipient. Our family goal is to raise $5,000.00 for Make A Wish Nebraska - the amount that will grant a wish for one Nebraska child fighting a life-threatening illness.
