3RD ANNUAL MG HERO RUN 5K AND COMMUNITY EVENT

Who Are You Running For?

The Massengale Group Hero Run 5K and community event is for active and retired military, veterans, and their family and friends. Founded by MGKW, whose business is comprised of several proud military families, and in conjunction with Nixa Education Foundation, and located in Nixa, Mo. This 5k is designed to benefit local kids of active and retired military and to promote awareness and support for those who serve. Last year, this run was able to raise $6000 in scholarship monies, that was fully awarded to a local Nixa Senior and daughter or one of our local military heroes. We can't wait to see what we can do this year with your help!! Register yourself or your team today..and tell us...WHO are YOU running for???"
