Description

The Bozeman 3 is Excited To Present The Third Annual Super Bowl Fun Run 

Before enjoying all the tasty sips and snacks that accompany watching the big game, we invite you to come burn some calories, support The Bozeman 3, and have some fun in the process!  With your participation in this event you will be supporting the families of the children right here in Gallatin County that have been diagnosed with pediatric cancer. So, come join us at the Rocking R Bar dressed in your favorite NFL apparel, and help us Tackle Pediatric Cancer!

 

Kiddo Kickoff Run: 

Children 12 and under can participate in our second annual Kiddo Kickoff! The kiddos will kickoff  the big day by running around the block of the Rocking R Bar. The 0.3-mile race route (around the block of the R Bar) will be lined with staff to cheer on your kids and keep them safe! However, we strongly encourage any parents who feel their child may need a little extra support (and cheering) to join them in their run. We have also included a package for any children who want to run both the Kiddo Kickoff and 5k. 

 

Registration Packet Pick-up: Various Times At The Rocking R Bar

  • Friday, January 31st from 5-8 pm
  • Saturday, February 1st from 1-4 pm
  • Sunday, February 2nd from 9-9:50 am (pre-race)

Pre-registrants are guaranteed to receive a Super Bowl Fun Run long-sleeve race shirt to add to your sweet wardrobe, or collection of running shirts.  Therefore, you must register your kiddos if they plan to participate, even if they are free! For late registrants, a limited number of shirts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis so pick up your registration packets EARLY!  The packet will also include your race bib.

  • Kiddo Kickoff Start: 10:00 am MST at the Rocking R Bar on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2, 2020
  • 5k Race Start: 10:30 am MST at the Rocking R Bar on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2, 2020

Please note, as this is a fun run, it will not be a timed race.  Streets will not be closed to traffic in support of the course, however we will have crossing guards at all intersections to ensure your safety (and to cheer you on)! 

 

If Supporting The Bozeman 3 Wasn’t Enough…

We will provide you with a free hot dog and bag of chips made by Hail Mary's (located in the R Bar) for anyone who worked up an appetite! If you do not like hot dogs and chips, do not fret! Hail Mary's will have their full menu available for purchase.  Cardinal Distributing will provide a free Michelob Ultra to all participants over the age of 21 following the race (make sure to bring your ID).  For all our kids (and kids at heart), Sweet Peaks will be dishing up some free ice cream!  So, bring your non-running friends to celebrate with you after the race!  

 

Did You Say Prizes?  Heck Yes, And You Don’t Even Need To Win The Race!

We have collected donated prizes from very generous local businesses (please give them your love and thanks for their donation).  All Race Bib numbers will be entered to win a prize, and you must be present to win.  The drawing will occur inside the R Bar at 12:00 pm MST, including a Best Dressed adult and kiddo (remember the NFL apparel thing, ya, that). Do not forget to represent your favorite team in the craziest way!  Prizes have been donated by: The Rocking R Bar, Bozeman Running Co., The Bozeman Bowl, Spire Climbing Center, Love Your Melon Campus Crew, Bozeman Hot Springs Spa and Fitness, Western Cafe, Burger Bob's, Malibu Tan, Once Upon a Child, Clark's Fork, Intrigue Ink, Inspired Madness (Nova+Feed+Lot G+Daily Coffee), Sage Spa, Dee-O-Gee, Townshend's Teahouse, Riverside Country Club, Montana Silversmiths, The Upper Cut, Great Rocky Mountain Toy Company, Meridian Boutique, Westslope Creative Studios Inc., Stacey & Funyak Law Firm, Blanche Plovanic and Broadwater Place Family Dentistry (James Patterson, DDS).

 

What If The Montana Weather Is Not Awesome?

If the MT weather is not considered safe for runners, we reserve the right to cancel the run (but we will still have all the planned fun at the R Bar, so come enjoy your free hot dog with a bag of chips, ice cream, beer for ages 21+ and the chance to win a prize!).  Should this be the case, your money will be deemed a donation to The Bozeman 3 and will not be refunded.  Again, we will only cancel the race if the weather is considered to be unsafe for running conditions.

 

Can I Bring My Dog Or A Stroller To The Race?

As much as we love the four-legged kids, please do not bring your pet to the race.  This is a race supporting kids, so please feel free to bring strollers so the whole family can participate!

Our Cause - Tackling Pediatric Cancer

The mission of this event and The Bozeman 3 is to tackle pediatric cancer as a community. 

The Bozeman 3 arose out of a unique bond between three families forged in their shared experience of fighting for the lives of their children diagnosed with pediatric cancer, far from the support and beauty of their homes in the Gallatin Valley of Montana.  They met in the hallways of Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Oncology Unit in early 2012.  While each child faced a different form of cancer, these children, along with their parents, possessed a resolve to fight. 

Since 2012, The Bozeman 3 has provided support for 12 Gallatin Valley families, with a strong mission: to financially support Gallatin County families whose child has received a cancer diagnosis, to provide peer support by connecting local families whose children have or have had cancer, and to support pediatric cancer research.

The Bozeman 3 Thinks These Organizations Are Pretty Cool - Check Them Out!

 

Make-A-Wish Montana:

Together with support from donors and volunteers across our state, Make-A-Wish Montana has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening critical illnesses through its life-changing work granting wishes. This hope-giving experience is a vital part of the healing process and has a scientifically proven positive impact on children’s medical situations, their families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and their entire community. Wishes are more than just a nice thing – they are a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish Montana. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child. Wishes are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all that they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy. Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles … wishes make the world better. Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Help spread hope in Montana by visiting www.montana.wish.org and follow the incredible stories of wish kids in your community!

 
Be The Match:

Register to be someone’s cure and save a life! Be The Match is a national non-profit organization that manages a bone marrow registry for cancer patients.  It may sound scary, but don’t go yet!  Similarly to others, the words “marrow donation” may freak you out. Don’t worry. You’re not alone! However, IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK. In fact, over 90% of people polled about marrow donation accept certain myths and misconceptions as the truth. The fact is, donating bone marrow is not anywhere near as frightening as most people assume.  Many people describe the donation process as a feeling of soreness, much like one would feel after a day at the gym.  Furthermore, thousands of patients with blood cancers and other life-threatening diseases need a marrow transplant to survive. Unfortunately, 70% of patients do not have a fully matched donor in their family. That is when patients depend on Be The Match to make a difference. YOU COULD BE THE HERO THEY NEED. By joining the Be The Match Registry, your tissue type will be included in the search process for every patient in need. To join the national bone marrow registry, all you must do is complete an informational form and swab your cheek. The process is quick and completely painless!   To find out more information about Be The Match, please stop by their booth at the event.  To register online or find out more information about Be The Match click HERE. 

 

Love Your Melon:

Love Your Melon is an apparel brand run by college students dedicated to giving a hat to every child battling cancer in the nation. Half of LYM's proceeds go to our nonprofit, cancer fighting partners such as Be The Match, CureSearch, Pinky Swear Foundation, among many others. Montana State's crew is a group of hard-working college students focused on a common goal of defeating pediatric cancer. Our crew is dedicated to spreading the mission in fun ways and supporting families in the Gallatin Valley who are dealing with this terrible disease. Supporting Montana State University's LYM crew allows this group of students to host fun events for local kids with cancer. Shop Love Your Melon by clicking HERE.

Special Thanks

The theme for this race was from the creative mind of Megan Maynard, an MSU graduate, matriculating dental student, and future dentist.  She is the Volunteer Event Director of this annual event, and continues to spearhead all the hard work to support what we know will be a very successful event for years to come.  Thank you Megan for your generosity, thoughtfulness, time, energy, creativity, conviction, and compassion for The Bozeman 3 and the families in the Gallatin Valley with kids fighting cancer.  Additionally, we are indebted to Mike Hope and Tony Kaber with the Rocking R Bar, Casey Jermyn and Lauren Wolf with The Bozeman Running Company, and to the Pre-Dental Club, National Health Preprofessional Honors Society (AED) and Be The Match on Campus at MSU for their generous support.
