The festival will include live music, games, face painting, food and a 5K run.
Fun and games will take the forefront at the Fight Like a Firefighter festival Saturday in Wentzville, but the proceeds will go to the serious and worthwhile goal of helping cancer patients in need. "There are a lot of organizations...that spend a lot of their time and energy on research, which is a great thing," said Max Mueller, a Wentzville firefighter and a member of the Wentzville Firefighters Community Outreach. "But there’s not a lot of groups that give directly back to people who are suffering from cancer, and that’s kind of what our group does. With the funds we raise, we have an application process, and if we can help somebody with their utilities or medical bills, we pay their bills directly." Cancer patients and their families …

Locals run through five miles of winding trails, proceeds benefit charitable horse riding organization.
On Sunday, about 40 locals came to Broemmelsiek Park for a five mile run called "Hit the Trail." Participants paid anywhere from $15 to $35 to run through the thick trees and tall grass prairie at the park. This was the first time Broemmelsiek Park has hosted this event. Proceeds for the run went to Galloping for Girls, a local organization that helps teen girls learn life lessons through riding and caring for horses. According to Galloping for Girls founder Kylin Meyer, girls who sign up for the program only pay about $100 for riding lessons and other materials. The organization pays for the rest of the cost. Meyer said the event raised more than $5,000 for Galloping for Girls. For full race results, click here.
