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.
