I Am Brave 5K – 2018

Come join us on September 3 for an enjoyable run through the Frontier Culture Museum, and help raise funds for the Meredith Furr Summer Camp Scholarship Fund. During the past three summers, Mer’s Scholarship Fund was able to send over 85 deserving kids to camp!

Meredith Furr was a wonderful little girl and a member of our Frontier Culture Museum family. As many of you know, we lost Mer to cancer in 2016.  To honor Mer, the Museum has created a scholarship program in her name. Mer spent 2 of her 10 summers as a camper here at the Museum, and we know she’d be happy to help other kids enjoy the same opportunity. Every year, the Frontier Culture Museum hosts hundreds of kids for week long summer camps. Camps are fun, educational, and offer the kind of adventure kids will long remember.  Sadly, too many kids don’t experience our summer camp because their families can’t afford to send them. Every scholarship generated opens the world of the Frontier Culture Museum for a child to learn and grow.
