We are looking for volunteers for the planning committee!   If you would like to be on the planning committee contact heartandsole@stjoeshealth.org or call 734-593-5281.

We would like to thank all participants, volunteers and sponsors in anticipation of another great event!


As of 2015, 100% of the race proceeds benefit the Behavior Health Services at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea.  The beneficiaries provide a continuum of behavioral health services to meet the specific needs of patients and their families in Chelsea and surrounding communities, addressing the physical, psychological, and social aspects of well-being.  St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea has provided behavioral health services to our community for more than 40 years.  Their exceptional patient satisfaction scores and outcomes reflect the extraordinary care our physicians and staff provide to those in need.

Thanks to participants, volunteers and sponsors, we were able to make a $7,500 donation to the Behavioral Health Services of St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, which went towards staff training and program development.
