Here are some other activities going on around Midland to help you celebrate Independence Day:
The 2021 Freedom Run is back in person! This year's race will feature a 5K & 10K on July 3, 2021, in conjunction with the 2021 Star-Spangled Salute at the new Centennial Park. Kick-off Independence day through a great family race with some local competitive runners in attendance.
The Freedom Run exists to provide scholarships for City of Midland employee dependents who are going to college. The Midland Municipal Employee Scholarship Fund was created on April 20, 1995. MMESF has given over $200,000 in scholarships since its inception. The purpose of the Midland Municipal Employee Scholarship Fund (MMESF) is to provide financial assistance in the form of a scholarship to dependents of City of Midland employees.
Let’s celebrate our freedom and those who help maintain our freedom, like police officers and firefighters, by giving back to their kids’ futures!
