About This Event
“This event is brought to you in collaboration with our community partner Gryphon Place, who both supports and provides suicide prevention services for veterans and others across our region”.
The fifth annual Alive and Running VA 5K is a 5K Fun Run/Walk. This event is designed to raise awareness to the growing problem of suicide within the Military, Veteran and youth populations. The course is located on the campus of the Battle Creek VA Medical Center. The race starts in the parking lot located at the entrance of the medical center. The run goes up the main hill and around the historic campus twice before returning down the hill to the finish. The race this year will be timed. Runners will start first, with walkers to follow. Children and strollers will be allowed - note that children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times. Dogs will not be allowed (please email the race administrator regarding service dogs). In the event of inclement weather, the race may be delayed or cancelled. No refunds will be given. Please join us for this event to celebrate life, and to raise awareness towards suicide. We want everyone to know they matter.
This race is an opportunity for all of us to show Veterans, their families, and the entire military community that THEY matter. Our goal for the fifth year of this event is to have our biggest turnout yet. Please come join us for the fifth annual Alive and Running VA (Battle Creek) event, brought to you in collaboration with our community partner Gryphon Place.Together we will do our part to prevent suicide and raise awareness.
