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 life and memory of Jake, as well as other local children and adults that have left us too soon.  As we honor these families with loved ones on Angel Avenue, we are raising funds for the Jake Arntson Teammate of the Year Scholarships.  These scholarships are awarded to CMR, GFHS and now GF Central student-athletes that have displayed the qualities of being the best teammate.  There are as many walkers as runners, all are welcome.

Packet Pick-up
Sunday, September 12th, 2021, at The Peak West Bank Landing, 401 3rd Street Northwest, Great Falls.

My Best Day Course
