Quality of Life Run
The Quality of Life run is Saturday morning so watch for runners. There will be two traffic closures between 5am-10am. One will be the ramp exiting North 27th on Rimrock Road and a small portion of North 32nd Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue North. The Quality of Life Community Involvement Program was created by the Billings Association of REALTORS® (BAR) in 2004 with the inception of the Quality of Life Run. The goal was to help raise awareness of and money for non-profits in the community that are working to improve the quality of life for our residents.
The Quality of Life Run has grown significantly since 2004. In 2007, a second event – the Quality of Life Casino Night – also was added. To date, more than $172,000 has been raised through these events for non-profits including the YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, Tumbleweed Runaway Program, Senior Helping Hands, Misty Dawn, Relay for Life, Yellowstone CASA, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Special K Ranch and Riverside Middle School.
This year the run will benefit the "YWCA Is On A Mission"
