Mercy Sunshine Run

Mercy Sunshine Run 5k – Benefits Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks

The 35th Annual Mercy Sunshine Run will start and finish at Hammons Field, home of the Springfield Cardinals. We are pleased to announce Olympian Emily Scott will be spotlighted at the Mercy Sunshine Run! She will start each race, take pictures with participants, and join us at the award ceremony and after party. The after party will include music by N2Deep and world famous Chris Cakes out of Kansas City, Missouri. Did you know Chris Cakes holds multiple world records? They hold the record for the most pancakes flipped in an hour as well as the highest pancake toss, to name a few. Make sure you don’t miss it!!!! We encourage all participants to join us at no extra cost for all-you-can-eat pancakes with sausage and tang to drink.

Events include a 10K, 5K, and a 1-Mile Walk.  A portion of the proceeds benefit Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks. The Sunshine Run attracts more than 1,000 participants annually.
