About the event

My Best Day 5k and Kids Dash is a fundraiser for the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund.  Please join us as we celebrate the memory of a boy that was a light to not only his family, but everyone that knew him.  All monies raised will go to the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund through the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation, which will fund the Jake Arntson Teammate of the Year Scholarship.   These scholarships will be awarded to three C.M. Russell  and three Great Falls High School student-athletes that demonstrate the qualities of an exceptional teammate in their sport.   There are just as many walkers as runners, all are welcome.


Packet Pick-up

Participants will have two options for packet pick-up.  Saturday, September 8th, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. or Sunday, September 9th, 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. at Big Mouth BBQ/The Front, 201 3rd Street Northwest, Great Falls, Montana.
