The Joplin Memorial Run is proud to support tornado recovery through donations to Rebuildjoplin.org. In addition to the money raised by runners, a sizable donation will be made to after the event is complete. Funds from future JMR events are targeted toward the construction and maintenance of memorials to the victims and heroes of the May 22nd tornado.
Rebuild Joplin was founded in response to the tornado that tore through
Joplin, Duquesne, and other surrounding communities. Rebuild Joplin
began as a website to coordinate donations and volunteers, then evolved
into serving the immediate needs of recovery, eventually shifting to the
repair and rebuilding of homes directly affected by the tornado.
Rebuild Joplin has rebuilt 64 homes to date, and aims to ensure that all
remaining families that were storm-displaced are returned home by 2015.
