Good Samaritan of the Ozarks- Pulaski County’s Charity of Choice for Fireball Run

During a recent press conference, held April 4, 2014, at Pulaski County Courthouse in Waynesville, MO, Pulaski County Tourism Bureau announced that Good Samaritan of the Ozarks has been designated as the official local charity to benefit from Fireball Run.

Karen Hood, Marketing Relations Manager of the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau said “Fireball Run is well known for philanthropy and supports a non-profit organization in each destination. It was daunting to select a charitable organization with so many worthy causes to choose from in Pulaski County. We chose Good Samaritan of the Ozarks. We know the organization; we know their work; and we know with highest degree of confidence that the contributions will have a direct positive effect on families, women and children of the entire county.”

Founded in 1987, Good Samaritan of the Ozarks is a faith based charitable organization that operates Genesis House, a local battered women’s shelter and local food pantry. Good Samaritan has a long history of providing emergence relief in Pulaski County to those in need, administering programs for underprivileged children and families, programs for needy elderly, and programs for food and gifts at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The benefit of being able to do that globally through Fireball Run is astounding! Not to mention, the excitement of a child who realizes people from all over the US provided something special just for them! We cannot tell you how excited we are!”

A reality-filmed series, FIREBALL RUN is the Most Epic Adventurally in America® a gripping and emotional 8 day, 2000 mile, life-sized trivia game, where America serves as the game board; 40 driving teams compete for glory, bragging rights, and a plastic road sign. All while aiding in a massive effort to recover America’s missing children.

The most epic adventurally in America!

The Race to Recover America’s Missing Children was started by the participants of FIREBALL RUN in memory of the plight for all missing kids and is the country’s largest and longest “active recovery effort” for missing and abducted children. Every FIREBALL RUN team is assigned a child missing from their home region. While competing in the adventure it’s their mission to distribute 1000+ posters throughout the journey in an effort to raise awareness for and aid in the recovery of that missing child. Annually FIREBALL RUN distributes nearly 75,000 posters which to date has aided in the recovery effort of more than 40 children.

Pulaski County, Missouri has been selected as an overnight host destination for Season 8 FIREBALL RUN: America’s Frontier and its Race to Recover America’s Missing Children. Several factors have led to the decision; particularly, Pulaski County has a robust and exciting pro-business community; an energetic, passionate and progressive Tourism Bureau; signature Midwest charm and hospitality as well as an abundance of history and attractions that will interest participants and excite audiences.

Pulaski County USA Logo

Streamed live to a world-audience and filmed as part of a popular online TV series, the 2013 FIREBALL RUN elicited a whopping $56 million in media exposure for its host destinations. Pulaski County is one of eight host destinations selected and it will serve as Chapter 6 in the series.

The adventure begins September 27 in Frisco, TX and finishes October 4 in Independence, MO. The public is encouraged to join the festivities in downtown Waynesville for an afternoon of live streaming, family fun, meet celebrity teams and see their rides on Thursday Oct.2 and again on Friday morning, Oct. 3 for the Day 7 green flag start.
