Bee Payne-Stewart Strut
BEE PAYNE-STEWART STRUT
The BEE PAYNE-STEWART STRUT is a special community wide fundraising project and partnership event designed to raise money for the women's athletic programs at Drury, Evangel, and Missouri State, along with providing funds for the Springfield-Greene County Park Board Youth Programs and WIN for Springfield. The Strut provides much needed funds for these programs to continue to grow and excel.
This is a unique opportunity to assist and support five different programs that increase awareness and funding for girl's and women's sports in the Greater Springfield Area. 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 5th Annual BEE PAYNE-STEWART STRUT are Susan Daniels and Lora Thomas, daughters of Bee Payne-Stewart.
How the Strut Works:
Team captains are recruited. They recruit a team of walkers. Each member of the team contacts people they know to obtain donations to support their walking. These donations apply to the individual and team's total, which qualify them for both individual and team prizes. To be eligible for individual prizes you must collect a minimum of $25.
