Bob was raised on his family’s
cattle ranch in Eastern Montana
and attended school in Rosebud,
MT. He and his brother grew up
working on the ranch and in their
limited free time, loved to play
high school basketball. After
high school, Bob moved to
Missoula to attend the
University of Montana.
I Run For Bob hosts two primary fundraisers each year. 100%
of our Foundation is organized, managed and directed solely by
volunteers; the majority of the funds we raise go directly to help
kids and adults acquire recreation equipment. We’d love to see you at
one or both of our events – everyone, of all abilities, is welcome.
Bob loved to play poker, so we deal ‘em up each March with a
Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament in Missoula, MT. It’s a day filled
with fantastic prizes and giveaways, complimentary food and beer,
Jack Daniels drink specials, raffles, a 50-50 drawing, lots of laughs
and great fun! Come out and play some cards and help a great cause
at the same time.
In September, we host a 5K race/fun run at the King Ranch Golf
Course in Frenchtown, MT. Included in the day is a free BBQ, music,
prizes, silent auction, and trophies for the winners. It’s a perfect
setting for families and runners/walkers of all levels. The course is
near the Clark Fork River at the base of the mountains – it’s common
to see deer, geese, herons and even an elusive fox along your run ...a
very beautiful spot!!
We appreciate all the support from players, runners, participants,
spectators, volunteers, donors and sponsors – we sincerely thank you
for being a part of our cause, and in doing so, helping to provide
recreation equipment for folks with limited mobility.
