Mother-Son Stampede continues for 10th year
Kirksville, Mo. —
The Heartland Task Force is hosting an event this week specifically designed for mothers and their sons.
The event is called the Mother-Son Stampede.
It takes place Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The Heartland Task Force is a community coalition that implements programs for school children that are geared towards preventing bullying and substance abuse.
At the Mother-Son Stampede, participants can look forward to hay rides, an obstacle course, a firing range and a camp fire.
The event has been going on for 10 years in the Heartland.
Coalition member Sara Amini-Rad says the event allows families to spend quality time together.
"We’re all so busy all the time and just taking some opportunity to carve out a time to spend time together is really important. Especially to the development of children. They really need that time to bond with their family."
Parking is available at Truman State University Farm.
A hay ride will then take you to the location of the event which is behind Bruce Normile Juvenile Office.
