Missouri River Relief is returning to Jefferson City to clean-up the Missouri River.  During the last clean-up in 2014, hundreds of volunteers participated in removing tons of trash, but a flooded river kept us on land for that clean-up.  This time we're looking forward to targeting a wider reach of the river by boat. Hope to see you there!

Read up on the MR340 race!

11th Annual Missouri American Water MR340
- July 19-22, 2016

Kansas City, KS, to St. Charles, MO

A collection of photos, articles and videos about the MR340

Since 2007, Missouri River Relief has been a partner in the MR340 race - a 340 mile paddling race across the state of Missouri. Racers purchase super cool race stickers and all of that money goes to support our efforts. We bring as many safety boat crews as we can and help up and down the race course.
