Take on the 40th Anniversary of the Fifth Third River Bank Run on Saturday, May 13, 2017 as part of Purple Community Team Hope!
Join Purple Community Team Hope today, and help support cancer, Parkinson’s, and neurodegenerative disease research happening right here in West Michigan, while making a global impact.
Help us raise awareness, celebrate those living with cancer or Parkinson’s disease, and honor loved ones who have passed away by supporting research that gives hope to patients and families around the world.
Running a race of ANY distance is an incredible undertaking in and of itself and requires a tremendous amount of physical and mental endurance and motivation. Why not give yourself an added boost of motivation by running in honor or memory of someone in your life that has faced a cancer or Parkinson’s disease journey?
When you sign up to run with Purple Community Team Hope on behalf of Van Andel Institute, we will be with you every step of the way! You will have access to fitness training, an amazing team of supporters, and the best part? Absolutely 100% of every single dollar you raise will go directly to cancer and Parkinson’s disease research happening at Van Andel Institute.
Thanks to an endowment established by our founders, Jay & Betty Van Andel, every donation we receive goes straight to the labs, to increase the rate of discovery and help us to find new treatments for these devastating diseases.
