Description

The Bozeman 3 is Excited To Present

 The 4th Annual Super Bowl Fun Run

2021 Virtual Addition

We have gone virtual!  Help us raise funds for the Gallatin Valley families living the unimaginable.  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.  Dress yourself up, your kiddos, and your four-legged friends in your favorite football team apparel, and help us Tackle Pediatric Cancer!

NOTE: 100% of funds raised go to the Bozeman 3 families. The Bozeman 3 is a Bozeman-based non-profit organization that supports Gallatin Valley families with kids diagnosed with Cancer. It provides financial support for assistance with expenses that are not covered by insurance, serves as a platform for families to connect and provide support to each other as they navigate pediatric cancer with their child, and donates to research organizations focused on improving treatments for children. Since its’ inception in 2012, The Bozeman 3 has been managed by an all-volunteer board and has provided support to over 15 Gallatin Valley families.  

With that said, your support is still critical to helping these families, and it is our sincere hope that you will participate VIRTUALLY in this super fun event!  Our efforts are only as good as the support we get from our community to continue to support these families and future families. Spread the word! 

What is Virtual Race? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, slog or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill at the gym, or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, at your own time and place.

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 15 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

This race was founded by the creative mind of Megan Maynard - an MSU graduate and current student at Marquette University School of Dentistry. Megan served as the Event Director for 3 years, spearheading all the hard work necessary to make this a successful annual event, before moving to Wisconsin for dental school. We extend a heartfelt thank you to Megan for her generosity, thoughtfulness, time, energy, creativity, conviction, and compassion for The Bozeman 3 and the families in Gallatin Valley whose children are 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.
