Springfield, MO - The 1st Annual MSU ADA Toga 5K was held Saturday, September 22, 2012 on the MSU Campus, benefiting the American Diabetes Association. Participants ran all over the MSU Campus, some in Togas, in support of the American Diabetes Association.

It was Military appreciation day at the MSU Bears football game, at Bearfest Village there was a military helicopter and jeep on display for kids and adults to explore. Also, several military units were there grilling hot dogs and hamburgers free of charge!! Bearfest ended at the start of the MSU football game, Bears vs. Southern Illinois.
