WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A VIRTUAL RUN?
It's just like a regular run, the only difference is that on race day, you will be the only one at the starting line!
It's just as fun, just as challenging, and, most importantly, it's a SAFER way to flex your racing muscles!
Join the Virtual Freedom Run in the name of fun & fitness
The Freedom Run exists to provide scholarships for City of Midland Employee dependents who are going to college. The Midland Municipal Employee Scholarship Fund was created on April 20, 1995. MMESF has given approximately $216,000.00 in scholarships since its inception. The purpose of the Midland Municipal Employee Scholarship Fund (MMESF) is to provide financial assistance in the form of a scholarship to dependents of City of Midland employees.
Let’s celebrate our freedom and those who help maintain our freedom, like police officers and firefighters, by giving back to their kids’ futures!
Participants can add a 2020 Freedom Run T-shirt showing your support for $5 additional dollars this year!
We encourage you to find safe ways to get involved and get active -- it is more important than ever to take care of our health and wellness.
