About this event

We are excited to announce planning is underway for an in-person event this year! A virtual race option will also be available.

Your participation supports local patients fighting cancer

Race proceeds will benefit the Susan P. Wheatlake Cancer and Wellness Fund, an endowment of the Spectrum Health Foundation Big Rapids & Reed City Hospitals. The fund provides resources, programming, and services that directly impact cancer patients and their families in our region.

The Susan P. Wheatlake Regional Cancer Center is a comprehensive regional treatment facility bringing together the full range of services for patients and families on their cancer journey. The cancer center features a Wellness Center, which includes a library, boutique, gift shop, and an integrative therapy room. Patients can borrow educational materials from the center and also receive free massages and integrative therapy services. The center hosts support groups and educational sessions to assist patients on the road to recovery. All wellness services are provided FREE OF CHARGE thanks to generous donations to the Wellness Fund.
