REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 12:00pm SEPTEMBER 11th. THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY REGRISTRATION. Please feel free to still come join the festival, registration is not required to participate in the other festivities!
The Frances 5K will celebrate the life of Frances Nambi Kaneene on her heavenly birthday, September 12th. It will be held along the Hawk Island trails where she ran for over two decades, even during treatment. The location has a beach, playgrounds, lake and, most of all, is blessed by her spirit, by way of her ashes. We hope you will join for a day to walk or run and then, stay to be in community with each other, food, music, live performances and more.
To those who would like to participate virtually, we invite you to sign up and participate from a far, and you will receive all of your gifts + a race t-shirt to right to your door -- and well as have opportunities to stream the music festival portion.
All proceeds will support the Frances Kaneene Scholarship at Michigan State University to provide students at MSU, who were her heart and soul.
