Fifth Annual Bee Payne-Stewart Strut Set for Saturday
The 5th Annual Bee Payne-Stewart Strut is slated for Saturday, April 30. The 30 minute, mile-and-a-half walk through downtown Springfield begins in front of Mediacom Ice Park at 10 a.m. with check in starting at 9 a.m.
The annual event is a special community-wide fundraising project and partnership event designed to raise money for the women's athletic programs at Missouri State University, Drury University and Evangel University. The Strut also provides funds for the Springfield-Greene County Park Board Youth Programs and WIN for Springfield. In short, the funds raised make a difference in the lives of outstanding young women and children for years to come and continues to build a strong foundation for women's athletics in the Greater Springfield Area.
Honorary Co-Chairs for the 2011 Strut are Susan Daniels and Lora Thomas, daughters of Bee Payne-Stewart.
