      Sign up for Firecracker 5K Run

      KTVO and The Food Bank are teaming up for the first Firecracker 5K run!

      Looking for some fun this 4th of July, well we might have some for you!

      KTVO is teaming up with the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri for the first Firecracker 5K run. The run and walk will be in conjunction with the Red, White and Blue Festival this year. It's set to start at 8 a.m. at Dukum Inn downtown Kirksville, and will be fun for the whole family.

      "Right after our festival is the parade, the fireworks are that night and Friday and Saturday there are more activities," said Susan Dublin, Regional Coordinator for the Food Bank. "So it's going to be a really nice holiday weekend so let??s kick it off with a 5K."

      The event will benefit the Food Bank to help families who go without food daily. They are projecting 600,000 pounds of food into Adair County from the Food Bank, but that's not enough for the amount of people who go without each day.
