Run or Walk for a Cause:  MS Moments

We are thrilled to announce that MS Moments will, once again, host the Grimes Governors Days 5K!  Mark your calendars for a morning full of fun, fitness, and community spirit on June 8th. Whether you're a seasoned runner or seeking a lively weekend activity, we cordially invite you to come and make memories with us.

Packet pick-up will be from 1:00 PM-6:00 PM Friday, June 7th at Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping, 1451 SE 3rd Street, Ste. 500, in Grimes. On race day, packet pick-up and registration will start at 6:30 AM in the Adesa parking lot (1800 SE Gateway Drive) on June 8th. The 5K will start at 7:30 AM with the Fun Run beginning at approximately 8:15 AM.

Medals will be given and refreshments will be available to all registrants. Prizes will be awarded to all 5K winners in their respective age brackets with door prizes for finishers. Kids age 12 and under can participate in the 1 Mile Fun Run. All kids that register and participate will be given a medal, refreshments, and a door prize. Places and times will not be recorded for the Fun Run.

Both races will start in the Adesa parking lot and be run through the residential areas in Grimes. All prizes will be distributed following the conclusion of the Fun Run. You must be present to win.

Join us for a special tribute at this year’s Stomp Out MS 5K Run/Walk as we honor the memory of Shawna Marzahl, beloved sister of Karrie Anderson, the founder of MS Moments. Shawna, who was diagnosed with MS last fall, tragically lost her life in a car accident recently.


Let's come together to support Karrie and honor Shawna at Stomp Out MS. Your participation will not only celebrate Shawna's life but also support the fight against multiple sclerosis, a cause close to her heart. #TeamShawna

All proceeds from the run will support MS Moments, a local non-profit organization.  MS Moments is dedicated to providing support for Iowans affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and their families.

The Governors Days parade will follow the 5K at 10:00 AM. For information on other Governors Days events, visit

We hope to see you at the starting line for this exciting event!
