Show-Me STATE GAMES torch run starts in Joplin




In preparation for the 2013 Show-Me STATE GAMES participants and the public took part in a torch run on Wednesday.

The run took place at Cunningham Park and the official games will get underway in late July.  The torch will travel across Missouri and will eventually end up at Mizzou Arena in Columbia on July 19th for the opening ceremonies.

Officials say the park was the perfect place to bring the torch in to Joplin.

"Certainly Cunningham Park means a lot to not only this community but certainly also the state," says Dave Fox of Show Me STATE GAMES.  "Believe it or not we have a lot of participants in this area so it was a natural fit for us.  The decision was made by us and Shelter and we are happy to be here."
