The 0.5K Race - February 10th
'Tis back again - the 3rd Annual 0.5K Winter Dash benefitting the BMA Foundation on February 10, 2019. 
That's right, 'just 0.5K - once around the building - but we don't expect you to finish it all at once. Remember to stop and enjoy a complimentary warm beverage from the Halfway House, catch your breath, share a bit o' wit and wisdom, and then kick it on around the rest of the building.
If ya wanna see how it went last year, well, just look at these pics By the way, the total raised for the BMA Foundation the past two years is just shy of $8000.
What's it all for?
The Brian M. Anselmo Foundation ( is a grand organization that does great work for children's and family causes including Charlie's House, Operation Breakthrough, Bags of Fun Kansas City, Noah's Bandage Project, Kids TLC, and more.

'Twill be held February 10 at 12Pm.  We'll do the kids run first while the adults get properly ready for the race.  Each racer will receive a great pile o' gear like
  • Warm winter gloves with touch fingers
