Let’s create a wave of momentum across the state of Michigan, and beyond, to do something that changes lives. We can do so much more together than we could ever do alone,” said event coordinator and kindergarten teacher Laurie Bradshaw. “Challenge yourself and get your body moving while being a game changer and impact maker.

A safety mitigation plan has been submitted to Bloomer Park, which recognizes the most up-to-date requirements. Hand washing stations are readily available and social distancing guidelines are a part of the event. Staggered start times will also provide a safe way for participants to engage in the race and walk. “Things have changed, but we are ready. We want you to know your safety is our top priority,” said Bradshaw. “We have a super strategic plan in place for the safety and fun of everyone involved. Come out and join the fun and be an everyday hero.”
