Sorry for the late notice, but there's still time to grab the kids and come down to Hawk Island Park on Cavanaugh Road in Lansing Saturday morning for a 5k Run/Walk. There's a kids' run and other fun activities for the cherubs and it's great exercise for you to start your weekend. Remember: ALL PROCEEDS GO THE RONALD McDONALD HOUSE! The RMH is a place where families can stay (free of charge if they can't afford to pay) when they're children are in the hospital. Often times the child is in the hospital for a serious procedure that takes days or weeks and the House allows parents to stay somewhere with a homely atmosphere for a very limited cost. If you know a family who's used a RMH ask them what they thought and you'll likely get a heartwarming testimonial.
The House is a self-sustaining charity and we pay a mortgage and have bills like everyone else. That's why these charity events, like the Run/Walk and the Golf Classic in July, are so important. So, if you get a chance, come on out to hawk Island Park and run, walk or just have fun. Registration starts at 8:45.
I'll be there!
