Rochester Hills Hosts Ninth Annual Fun Run

Government Youth Council Gives Back to Local Charity

On June 17, runners and walkers will lace up their shoes and head to Bloomer Park for the Annual Rochester Hills Government Youth Council Charity 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by Omega Rehab Services and River Square Family Dentistry.  

This year, all the proceeds will go to the Assistance League of Southeast Michigan, a nonprofit 501 (c), (3), hands-on all volunteer organization whose mission is to clothe, feed, educate and comfort infants, children, adults and families through our community-based programs. One of their signature programs, Operation School Bell®, provides new school clothing and necessities: coat, shirts, pants, hat, gloves, underwear, socks, hygiene kit, and a book, carried home in a new duffle bag.
