Join us for the 3rd Priebe Strong 1062
The Priebe Strong 1062 run was dedicated to Mark Priebe and his family in light of the tragedy that struck on June 9, 2020. We are excited to announce the Priebe Strong 1062 run-on Saturday, October 22, 2022 in Republic, MO.
This year will be the 3rd annual Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and virtual run/walk in Republic. We will be giving part of the proceeds to Springfield-Greene County Park Ranger, Robert Bridges. Park Ranger Bridges was shot 6 times in November of 2021 when he responded to assist the Springfield Police Department on a call near Glenstone and Battlefield. Park Ranger Bridges sustained multiple injuries to both of his arms that has caused debilitating injuries. He is actually having
surgery in June of 2022 on his right arm to hopefully help give him better use of his arm and hand. The other portions of our proceeds will be going into our newly started Priebe Strong Foundation as well as the Republic Community Foundation (RCAT). We decided to start the Priebe Strong Foundation to raise monies to help First Responders and/or their families in Southwest Missouri, as well as to be able to give away scholarships each year.
Republic, Springfield and our surrounding communities have done so much for our family since my on-duty injury June 9, 2020 that we want to start giving back. Please join us again for our 3rd annual
Priebe Strong Run on October 22nd and let your family and friends know to register as well!
