36th Annual Fifth Third River Bank Run Official Charity: YMCA OF GREATER GRAND RAPIDS "STRONG KIDS HEALTHY U CAMPAIGN"
The YMCA's "Strong Kids Campaign" provides individuals with financial assistance to participate in activities and services they could not have otherwise afforded. One component of the Strong Kids Campaign is "Healthy U" -- an after-school program that provides social and behavioral interventions for at-risk students, grades K-8th.
Healthy U seeks to: 1) increase knowledge and understanding of the benefits of physical activity, good nutrition, and the application of healthy lifestyle habits; 2) increase levels of physical activity and skill development; 3) develop healthier eating habits; and 4) increase the number of personal developmental assets that build the relationships, values, skills, and beliefs that young people need to avoid at-risk behaviors.
Fifth Third Bank will donate $1 for each Fifth Third River Bank Run entry to support the YMCA's Strong Kids Campaign Healthy U program. Please consider joining Fifth Third Bank in supporting a program that will make a positive difference in the lives of kids.
DONATE $35 to the Strong Kids Campaign to receive a free race day Technical Shirt upgrade. Instead of the white, cotton t-shirt that comes with your event registration, you'll receive a high vis orange Technical Shirt (men's and women's sizing available) at Fifth Third River Bank Run packet pick-up on May 9 and 10 at DeVos Place (a $16.50 value). All charitable donations made at time of registration will be issued to the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids "Strong Kids Campaign" post-event.
