GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – In a few short months, the Fifth Third River Bank Run will be celebrating it’s 40th anniversary! Fifth Third Bank joined Maranda to talk about traditions and exciting new things happening this year. It’s now a local tradition. The second Saturday of May is set for the big race along with some other surprises.
The Purple Community is playing a big role in this year’s race with their Team Hope. When you sign up to run with Purple Community Team Hope on behalf of Van Andel Institute, they will be with you every step of the way! You will have access to fitness training, an amazing team of supporters, and the best part? Absolutely 100% of every single dollar you raise will go directly to cancer and Parkinson’s disease research happening at Van Andel Institute.
