Minneapolis, MINN. (December 2, 2016) – Attendees of the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) will have the chance to use their sneakers for more than just traversing the show floor when they run in the 2nd Annual Moose on the Loose 5K hosted by Julie McQueen and Jimmy Herman on Monday, January 16 at 4 p.m. The event is pegged as a fun run and doesn’t cost a dime to enter, but attendees will be encouraged to donate online to Wishes 4 Warriors and Stewards of Wildlife.
