Welcome

Thank you for participating in The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. First Annual 5K along Lansing’s beautiful RiverFront Trail .  Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was founded in 1911 on the campus of Howard University; a historically black college.  We participate in Social Action activities that will uplift our communities and Heath Initiatives by facilitating, participating and coordinating activities that promote good health practices. Our contributions to our community include programming in the following areas: health initiatives, social action, scholarships to high school students desiring secondary education and college endowment funds.
