Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series

The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series is a series of not-for-profit events sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and our dedicated community volunteers and sponsors. Our mission is to celebrate health and wellness, outdoor adventures and wildlife conservation in the beauty of the Ozarks. Our programs are designed to include activities for people of all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels and areas of interest. Proceeds from these events are shared by Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Ozark Greenways, Girls on the Run, Isabel’s House Crisis Nursery, Champion Athletes of the Ozarks, and our other local charities.

2023 finds the Bass Pro Fitness Series celebrating its 17th year. Over 28,000 people participated in our events as runners, walkers, bikers, spectators and volunteers in 2022. Over the course of 16 years, we have impacted over 500,000 participants, Outfitters, volunteers, community and neighborhood groups, charities, spectators, businesses and organizations.

The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is your chance to see the PGA’s future greats playing to give local kids great futures. The 2023 tournament will mark our 34th event, and our goal is enormous as usual. Since the tournament began in 1990, it has raised more than $19.4 million for children’s charities throughout the Ozarks. The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper (PCCC) is a PGA Tour golf tournament on the Korn Ferry Tour. The event is played at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, and is the parent to a myriad of related events hosted throughout the Ozarks. Be a part of this year’s success!
