Our vision for the Magnolia Meltdown continues to be the production of a high-quality, safe community event offering the 5K, 10K and half marathon distances, for people of all ages, levels and abilities.
The purpose of the event was, and continues to be, raising the awareness of the obesity epidemic in the United States and particularly in Mississippi. We strive to promote a lifestyle of health and wellness for our citizens and we offer an opportunity with the Magnolia Meltdown for our citizens, and people from across the country, the opportunity to come to Ridgeland, MS and participate in an awesome event celebrating life and movement. We produce a great event with a festival-like atmosphere with food and live music and we continue to enjoy growth from year-to-year.
Finally, we donate our proceeds to the St. Dominic Community Health Clinic in downtown Jackson which is run by Sister Trinita, providing care to the homeless, uninsured and working poor of the Jackson Metro Area.
We thank you for your participation. Have a great race!
