    2015 Rock4Kids Running Series: Polar Bear Run - Bass Pro Outdoor Fitness Festival

    The more that kids walk, run, ride their bikes or take part in any physical activity, the more the message of health and wellness is integrated into our community.

    Kids in the Springfield area may take part in the Rock4Kids program by counting the times that they exercise, read a book and do the right thing (i.e., perform an act of kindness, volunteer, etc.). We are using the marathon distance as a concept for points. Kids will track 25 points over a period of time and complete the marathon concept by choosing a distance to walk or run in one of our events. They can turn their tracking sheets in on the morning of the Zombie Run. They do not have to complete the tracking forms to participate.

    Registration for this event will close at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, June 17. We will reopen limited entry late registration at a slightly higher fee than regular registration costs during packet pick-up, allowing for in person, paper registrations as long as we have spots available. We will not be offering onsite registration the day of the event.

    All registered participants for the Polar Bear Run will be given a specially designed t-shirt and medal to commemorate the event! Come cool off this Summer with us by enjoying a fun and healthy activity ending at Hammons Field!

    Mid America Grand Slam Horse Show

    The “Mid Am Grand Slam” show will be held on July 10 - 12, 2014 at the Ozarks Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri and showcased the Two Year Old Futurity (previously held in May) and new class to showcase older horses called the Four Year Older Maturity. Like the Futurity, the Maturity classes also requires a nomination fee ($200 due by April 1) and will feature larger paybacks. The new show format will help consolidate expenses from the two individual shows and allow for larger monetary paybacks and prizes to not only the Futurity and Maturity classes, but also the regular classes. (Forms are available on the website or you may contact any Board Member to request a nomination/entry form)

    We are currently accepting sponsorships or donations for our show, show program and new website listings and would like to request your support again this year or as a first time sponsor. If you donate/sponsor $200 or more on any contribution to Mid America, we will include a listing on the new website at no added charge. (limited to six lines in address label format) Many of you have graciously supported our shows in the last few years and we truly appreciate your generosity.

    We appreciate everyone’s help over the years and look forward to seeing you at our “Mid Am Grand Slam” show in mid July.

    Sponsorship/Donation Forms, as well as nomination forms for the 2-Year Old Futurity and the Maturity Classes are available on the website or by contacting any Mid America Board Member.
