Muskegon Heights Optimist Club 5k Color Walk/ Run June 17th at Rowan Park

As the saying goes, when the sun is shining, it's time to make hay.  As the 2000 Man Unity March was setting up in Rowan Park in Muskegon Heights, the Muskegon Heights Optimist Club was on hand to talk about next weekends big event coming up in the once closed park...a 5k color walk/ run to bring the community together a little more and to raise a few bucks to help kids battling cancer.  Let's be honest, cancer doesn't care what your zip code is.

A little about the Muskegon Heights Optimist Club?  "Muskegon Heights Optimist Club works each day to make the future brighter by bringing the best out of children, in their communities, and in themselves."  That from the Optimist Club Facebook page.  Reading programs, mentor programs, financial literacy, library support youth recognition and development of pride and community.  Our kids..all of our kids are our future, and the Optimist Club works tirelessly to make sure that they know that as they grow, they are surrounded by a caring community who wants the best for them.

The Color Run/ Walk will be all you expect, fun for the whole family.  Activities for the kids, you can enjoy the run at your own pace and the money raised will go to support the Childhood Cancer Campaign.  According to the Optimist Club International website each year more than 12,000 children and teenagers and that one in every 330 Americans develops cancer before the age of 20.  Awful.

Wendee Dells sent me a note about the event, and she brought Thomas Smith with her.  As the 2000 Man March got ready to roll, we talked about next Muskegon Heights....and I gotta tell ya...this whole "New Normal" thing... it's awesome!  Take a listen!

Want a nice run?  Great!  Want to help the childhood cancer cause?  Even better!  Want to be part of the renewal of Muskegon Heights?  You're in the right place.  The City of Friendly People welcomes you to Rowan Park for the 5k Color Run/ Walk and all the details are to be found on their Facebook page in the event link below!
