Camp Barnabas is hosting the sixth annual Big Party Half Marathon & 5K to raise money for the Camp Barnabas Scholarship Fund to send kids with special needs and chronic illnesses to a life-changing week at Camp Barnabas. Presented by Innovative Dental of Springfield, the Half Marathon and 5K will start and end at @Jordan Valley Park in Springfield, MO. The certified, flat race route will weave through midtown Springfield and include live entertainment along the way. The race will end with a big party at Jordan Valley Park with free food, games, and live entertainment! We invite everyone to attend the Big Party at Jordan Valley Park after the race and to help cheer on our runners. ALL proceeds from the Big Party Half Marathon & 5K will go to the Camp Barnabas Scholarship Fund.
We invite all people with special needs and chronic illnesses to participate in our Stroll event at 7:15 AM, before the Half Marathon & 5K event. Strollers will complete a short distance walk at Jordan Valley Park, 635 E Trafficway, Springfield, MO 65806, as our runners, our volunteers, and the community cheer them on! Each stroll participant will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt and the recognition as the faces of our Big Party Half Marathon & 5K event. We want to show the community, our runners, and our volunteers what Barnabas is all about and we want all people with special needs to experience a little piece of Barnabas. We invite all stroll participants to volunteer afterward or join us for the Big Party at our finish line at Jordan Valley Park.
We need volunteers! It takes hundreds of volunteers the day of our race to make it a success! We need people to give water to our runners, to help with route direction, serve food, etc. To sign up to volunteer go here: http://www.bigpartymarathon.com/volunteer
