Why “Get It Dunn”?


The Get It Dunn Run is a 5k and half marathon that Mind Over Matter (M.O.M.), Inc. began eight years ago.  The event was created to help promote M.O.M.’s mission of “Personal Wellness, Community Betterment”.  Each year hundreds of people participate in the event held in Menomonie, WI.  The two races provide a venue for the most competitive runners to people who want to just get out for a fun walk.

What makes the Get It Dunn Run different than other runs?  The Get It Dunn Run isn’t just a run, it’s an event.  The post-race celebration includes a live band, sponsor booths, games and a lot of free food and drinks for the participants as they relax and soak in their accomplishment.  Whether you are a participant, volunteer or spectator, the day is fun for all.

So that leads us to the question, “Why Get It Dunn?”  The Get It Dunn Run is run by volunteers, just like M.O.M. The money raised from the event is M.O.M.’s main source of revenue that fuels M.O.M.’s outreach programs.  Due to the success and growth of the event, M.O.M. has been able to award over $45,000 in campership to students (k-12) and over $30,000 in post-high school scholarships and life scholarships to families and individuals in need.  M.O.M. is not an organization that has administrative salaries to pay because our volunteers run the organization so what you pay for your race entry goes back into the community.  When you “Get It Dunn”, you are not only helping yourself, you are helping others.
