About This Activity

The 4th Annual MK5K Run For Mom is a breast cancer awareness and fundraising project designed to aid local breast cancer survivors with medical expenses. 75% of the proceeds will benefit a local Queen Cancer Kicker, with the remaining 25% supporting the efforts of the Mary Kay Foundation; a major contributor to organizations performing cancer research and fighting to end violence against women. In 2015 alone, The Mary Kay Foundation donated over 5 million dollars to these critical causes. Locally, the financial and awareness campaigns are making a tremendous difference.

Join us in celebrating, honoring, praying, and participating with this year’s Queen Cancer Kicker, Sara Thomasson. Sara's story started a few months ago while she was pregnant with her and Adam's 3rd daughter. Sara was able to undergo a double mastectomy while she was pregnant. Surgery and recovery was a success, and a healthy daughter arrived, Sara started her chemotherapy treatments followed by radiation. Sara will be crowned at the 2016 MK5K Run for Mom event and we welcome you to be a part.

We are excited to bring this event to Joplin on the campus of MSSU at Fred G. Hughes Stadium, with a very special thank you to the MSSU Student Veterans Organization for their active role in supporting and helping facilitate this community action project.

There will be a silent auction, walk of honor on the track, and five kilometer run or walk through the beautiful Missouri Southern campus. The awards ceremony will be emotional, liberating, and centered in hope. Every participant will be provided a memorable keepsake and special event shirt.
