YMCA invites superheros to Chili Run

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

4th annual event set for Oct. 25 in downtown Cassville

The fourth annual 5K Chili Run begins at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 25 to help the Cassville YMCA raise funds for its annual scholarship campaign.

In conjunction with the theme for this year's Chili and Salsa Cook-off, the YMCA encourages people to dress up as their favorite superhero, said Dove Haney, the center executive for the local YMCA, located at 408 Highway 248. A prize will be given to the best costume.

The run starts and finishes at Seventh and Main streets on the park side of Main, Haney said. The top three finishers from each category receives a trophy.

The registration fee is $15 per person in advance or $20 per person on the day of the race. The registration cutoff time is 7:45 a.m. Oct. 25. The event also has a one-mile fun run.

Last year, the Cassville YMCA raised more than $31,000 in scholarships, Haney said.

For more information about the run and how to register, people may contact Haney at 417-846-1535 or dhaney@cassvilleymca.org.
