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.

WHEN and WHERE:

The 5th Annual BEE PAYNE-STEWART STRUT is Saturday, April 30. The 30 minute 1.5 mile STRUT through Downtown Springfield begins in front of Mediacom Ice Park. Check in at Mediacom Ice Park parking lot begins at 9:00 am. Welcome and announcements begin at 9:30 am and the STRUT begins at 10:00 am. Enjoy yourself at a leisure stroll, a determined pace walker, or a runner. A "strutter" may walk or run the course twice.

PRIZES

There will be prizes and special drawings for all participants who turn in their $25 donation by April 27. Prizes given out in the past have included items from each university, dinner certificates at local restaurants, a Cruise for 2 from Great Southern Travel, and jewelry from Marilyn's Fine Jewelry.

Why Join in on the Fun

Your donations will help make the athletic experience for young women athletes and kids in our community one they can be proud of and cherish for a lifetime. There will be incentive prizes for you to receive if your donations reach certain levels. You can network with other sport minded individuals in our community and get some exercise at the same time!
