Steve Schnarr

 The Missouri River Relief Board of Directors is pleased to announce Steve Schnarr as its new Executive Director.  Steve has held numerous positions in his many years with the organization, most recently as Program Manager.  He brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for Missouri River Relief that is very evident.  The board is excited to have Steve as the new captain of this incredible ship of staff, volunteer crew, and countless other patrons and volunteers that embrace our mission of connecting people to the Missouri River.  He will begin his tenure August 1st.  He will be replacing the current Executive Director, Jeff Barrow, who is retiring.  On behalf of the entire board of directors, we are extremely grateful for the great things Missouri River Relief has done and look forward to the even better things to come.

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.
