Kearney Lions Club Mud Run
The Kearney Lions Club is holding the 4th Annual Jesse James Showdown Mud Run on September 25, 2010 at Jesse James Park. This year we are celebrating our 60th year in the Kearney area and want to thank the community for allowing us to help where help is needed over the years.
By working together we've been able to support the community with medical equipment, free eye exam/glasses for Kearney-Holt patients who cannot afford them, donate food, money and school supplies to local food banks, recycle used eye glasses, donate money to Holt Ministerial Alliance, Backpack Ministry, UCM ROTC Fighting Mules, provide the Pence-McCoy Scholarship for a KHS Senior, recognize an Outstanding Boy and Girl in the Senior Class, sponsor the Halloween Party for Children, a Boy Scout Troop and Venturing Crew, support Eagle Scout Projects, send a KHS Band Student to Missouri Lions All-State Band Camp, donate to KHS PTO (After Prom Party), Kearney Quarterback Club, Holiday Helpers, Kearney Family Foundation, Kearney Senior Center, donate land for "Lions Park" in Kearney, Adopt-A-Highway, donate to Missouri Lions Eye Research Foundation, Lions Heartland Eye Bank, Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, Mid-South Lions Hearing, District Hearing Van, Lions World Service for the Blind, Leader Dog for the Blind and Missouri Lions Disaster Services. We also support Lions Club International humanitarian service projects throughout the world.
Our annual fund-raisers are; the concession at July 3rd Fireworks Celebration, Fruit Sales in the fall, "A Visit From Santa" over the holidays and our ever popular Jesse James Showdown Mud Run event in September.
We are pleased to provide a popular event that brings people to Kearney and hope you can join us for another year of mud racing activities so we can continue to support the community!
