The Visser Family YMCA Buck Creek Run has been working through plans to facilitate a physical distancing live event for you on June 27. Unfortunately with the extended "stay at home" order from Lansing and continued COVID-19 cases in West Michigan, we made the decision to move to a Virtual Race to keep the 47th annual Buck Creek Run alive in 2020. Your participation gives back to the Y as the Y has been supporting our community throughout this time.
The Visser Family YMCA Buck Creek Run is part of the City of Grandville 4th of July celebrations. Buck Creek Run began in 1974 as a way to add a healthy event to the 4th of July events and get people active. The course winds around the neighborhoods of Grandville and ends at the Grandville Middle School. The Buck Creek Run proceeds provide scholarships for the Visser Family YMCA Impact Achievers Program - an afterschool program for Grandville, Jenison and Hudsonville middle-school students
