GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Girls, get your running or walking shoes on! It’s almost time for the Gazelle Girl! The 5K run/walk and half marathon event is on Sunday, April 13 at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids. It’s a celebration of girl power, started in 2013 for the 40th anniversary of Title IX.
The event also gives back by raising money for local charities. Those include Kent County Girls on the Run, the YWCA of West Central Michigan, G.R.O.W., and D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s. The proceeds raised from the event will be split evenly between the four charities.
