Making An Impact
September marks the first month of the 21st year of Show Me The Ozarks Magazine. As we move into this new beginning, we have brought you many ways you can make an impact in our region. Today is the first day of the rest of our lives.
On our cover, meet DOG (Dee Oh Gee). He is the winner of our 13th Annual Cutest Pet Contest. On page 46, you can learn a little bit about him and how he will make an impact on veterans in our communities. We had 140 pets entered this year, and every entry helps support the endless efforts of Joplin Humane Society and Faithful Friends in Neosho. Thank you to all who entered and showed us the beautiful faces and helped support future fur babies in our region. Turn to page 46 and be prepared to fall in love!
Bras at The Bridge will raise funds September 18 for Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks for their Garment Give-Away Program, Free Screening Mammogram Program and Client Assistance Program. Join us at Redings Mill Bridge south of Joplin to show your support. Spend your day participating in one of the many fun activities, including bra decorating, axe throwing, poker run and more. This event will bring laughter and fun while helping meet the needs of women in our region.
Are you ready to run for a cause? Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Four States will host its ninth annual Big Red Shoe Run Saturday, September 18. This year’s event includes a 5k, 10k and 1-mile walk/run. All money raised stays local and benefits families within the Four States. Get a group together, register today and run/walk with heart to help others. Snacks and beverages will be available at the RMHC Café under the big top!
On September 30 from 9 am to 5 pm, join us at Freeman Hospital West main entrance for our 11th annual Covers for a Cause. This event helps bring breast cancer awareness to the red carpet, and all proceeds benefit Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation. Bring your friends and family, make memories and capture them for a lifetime while supporting women in our region. If you have come before, we have new surprises this year!
These events are just a few of the many ways to make an impact and support our region. Turn to our Calendar of Events and find a way to connect your interests with a passion to help others. There are so many ways to make today the first day of being the change we want to see in the world.
Happy September! Let’s make memories, cherish time with friends and family, and find ways to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
