The Mena Fun Run

My article from the March 23, 2016 issue of The Mena Star

The Mena Fun Run will be held on April 9th at the Mena School Bus Loop at 10:00 a.m. A fun run is a friendly race in which participants take part for enjoyment rather than competition. It is a great chance to come together as a family and teach your kids the importance of health and fitness.

The event is sponsored by the Quarters For A Cure Relay For Life Team and all proceeds will go to The American Cancer Society. All participants who have pre-registered by April 1st will receive a t-shirt. The adult pre-registration fee is 25.00 and the fee for children 17 and under is 10.00. There will be registration at the event from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The day of the event adult registration fee is 30.00 and the day of the event registration fee for children 17 and under is 15.00.

The focus of the Mena Fun Run is on fun! There will be awards given out for “Best Dressed Individual” and “Best Dressed Group” so dress up in anything silly or funny.  There will be bubbles and other interesting and fun things throughout the route. There will be medals given in several age groups as well as for the overall male walker and female walker.

Sign up and enjoy the company of friends and family, and the comfortable April weather, while running or walking for a great cause. We’ll see you out there! The Mena Fun Run will be an event you won’t want to miss.

Pre-registration forms are available at any local Bear State Bank. For more information call 479-394-3838 or email or
