The Broken Bow Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) invites everyone to hop along the trail with them Easter weekend.
The group is hosting a fundraiser âBunny Hopâ 5K fun run and 1-mile walk March 30. Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. at Fox Seasonal Farms, and the run/walk will get started at 7:30 a.m. The entry fee is $25, which includes a T-shirt, and prizes will be awarded in each category.
The group asks that you pre-register for the event by March 11, which can be done on their Facebook page at BrokenBowMopsBunnyHop.
Rapid progress is being made on the new North Park elementary school, and the Little Feet, Big Dreams Campaign is in full swing to raise the funding required for the pieces of the project not covered by the bond.
In the coming weeks, three fundraising projects are planned to give people the opportunity to help. And what a variety of projects they are!
