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 event.”

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 our community.

Race Expo

A Superhero Fun Run Expo will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. April 24 at the OMC Parkway Center.
