BENEFITING: ALTERNATIVES IN MOTION
EVENT DATE: Apr 13, 2013
For the last 17 years, the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Grand Valley State University has coordinated the Wheel Run Together to provide an opportunity for runners and wheelchair athletes to come together and raise money for a good cause.
For 14 years the proceeds from this race have been donated to Alternatives in Motion, a nonprofit organization in Grand Rapids MI that strives to provide quality used wheelchairs, and routine wheelchair repair services, to individuals and families demonstrating financial need in order to promote healthy, independent, and active lifestyles.
To date this race has contributed over $60,000 to Alternatives in Motion. Nearly 100% of your registration fee will go directly to Alternatives in Motion. Located in Allendale, just 15 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids, this is one race you won't want to miss!
New this year, sign-up in a team of 3-5 and save $5/person on registration! Prizes will be awarded to the team voted best costume as well as the team that raises the most money for Alternative in Motion. Don't forget to bring additional cash, as we will have a raffle at the conclusion of the event.
