OMC Superhero Fun Run is April 25
Race expo will be held April 24 at Parkway Center
Everyone needs a hero but cancer patients need superheroes. And who wouldn’t
love to have one of these unique trophies proudly displayed in their home
or office? The Annual Ozarks Medical Center Fun Run is pleased to present
the Superhero 5K, 10K and 1.5 mile racing event on April 25, 2015. The
races begin at 8 a.m. at the OMC Shaw Medical Building, home to the OMC
Cancer Treatment Center. The funds from this event benefit the OMC Cancer
Treatment Center’s expansion project.
“We have two new corporate awards this year. Join your coworkers
or teammates in raising money for the Cancer Treatment Center before the
race,” said Ward Franz, Director of the OMC Foundation. “The
team who has raised the most money will be awarded one of these amazing
superhero trophies to display at your business. An award will also be
given to the team with the most creative fundraiser. We appreciate everyone
who is helping our community members in the battle against cancer. And
these are ways to help without necessarily participating in the actual
Superhero spirit awards will be awarded to one child, one adult, and one
team. These awards are given to those who demonstrate the most spirit
on race day.
In 2014, the event drew nearly 650 participants, and raised over $10,000.
This year’s event features the superhero theme, and electronic chip
timing for the 5K and 10K. All of the proceeds from the Fun Run stay in
