Join us for a community event benefiting Bronson Children's Hospital, southwest Michigan’s only children’s hospital. Your generous support helps ensure the highest level of pediatric care will continue to be here—close to home—when children and their families in southwest Michigan need it. Together, we can help secure the future of children’s healthcare in our community.

Funds raised support pediatric life enhancement services, such as pediatric palliative care, child life services, art therapy, music therapy and more. These services support the patient and family experience, and have been shown to improve outcomes for hospitalized children. However, they are not always covered by insurance.

Early packet and shirt pick up will be at Bronson's Gilmore Center, Downtown Kalamazoo on Friday, September 26 from 11am - 2pm or Saturday, September 27 from 10am - 3pm. Packets will include your bib and disposable timing chip.

*If you ordered an additional tech shirt by September 11, they will also be available for pick up at this time. If you purchased after the 11th, it will be mailed to the address provided within three weeks after the event.

Excitement Zones will be set up at the following locations. These areas will be for family, friends and spectators to cheer and support our runners and walkers!
